This is Gentiana kochiana. Many thanks to Luciano (lousat) for ID!!!
This is my 500th post :). I'm proud, that I'm with you.
On Saturday we were in Slovakia in Chocske Vrchy (Velky Choc 1611m). It's about 150 km from my homecity Krakow, and about 50km beyond Polish-Slovakian border.
The highest summit in Chocske Vrchy is Velky Choc (1611m). It's really beautiful place. Because there were beautiful weather we could have seen many mountain ranges exactly all around.
We started from Valaska Dubova (649m), went throung Stredna Polana (about 1200m), Velky Choc (1611m), Drapac (about 1200m), Zabralie and again Valaska Dubova.
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciej,
Congratulations for your 500th post. This is a flower which I know well, it is growing actually on my alpine meadow and it is really a striking species. Pleasant trio which you have well framed on your shot. They very often grow in little groups of 3 and more flowers.
Have a nice weekend of trek I suppose
Kind regards

Hello Maciek,
I missed this impressive image to mark your 500th!
Superb capture of this species of Gentiana in flower.
Excellent POV to show three flowers with fine sharpness and natural colours in fine lighting.
Thanks for sharing this and i hope that you continue toi be active on TN for a long time to come!
Have a great weekend,

Hi Maciej,

The flowers are well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Gentiana kochiana. It is clear and sharp. The morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
