[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The yellow flower is called "Bitter Bergknapp" in Norwegian and this specimen was growing close to the Lyngen fjord, right at the stone.

From Wikipedia:
"Sedum acre, the Goldmoss Stonecrop, Goldmoss Sedum, Biting Stonecrop or Wallpepper, is a perennial plant native to Europe, but also naturalised in North America. This plant grows as a creeping ground cover, often in dry sandy soil, but also in the cracks of masonry. It grows well in poor soils, sand, rock gardens,and rich dirt; and in a variety of light conditions. It does not thrive in dense shade with limited water.
The leaves are simple, smooth-margined, and succulent. The flowers are yellow, Spring-blooming, in sprays held above the foliage. It spreads when allowed to do so, but is easily removed as it has shallow roots. It is lovely in hanging baskets and container gardens as a trailing accent, as borders, or as groundcover."

Hello Jon,

Beautiful composition. Sharpness is good and very nice vivid colours.


Hello Jon,
Good light gives outstanding colours!
Fine details in the petals, DOF spot on and an attractive composition...

Hello Jon,
Sedum are of my favourite plants. I see that you have in Norway almost the same as we have in the Alps. Interesting composition and nice lateral light.
Thanks and best regards

great close up, beautiful light, TFS Ori

bienvenue sur TN, enchantée de voir les quelques images.
bonne capture de celle-ci, bonne netteté de ces jolies fleurs jaunes sur un excellent BG, bravo, merci du partage avec moi

Hi Jon,
A wonderful little delicate flower and so perfectly captured. I am actually sure that this flower looks delicate, but is a very tough plant, especially since its located in a cold part of the world.
The details, DOF and lighting are all spot on.

Hi Jon, Great light, excellent DOF and colour. I think I have found also this plant at the top o nearly bare rock last year. Looks very similar.

Hi Jon!

Gorgeous norwegian, wild flower. Excellent lighting, sharpness and clarity.
I like the flowers color a lot.

Greetings ... Ileana :o)
