Pulsatille de montagne

This is the typical Pulsatilla we can find in Valais and some regions in Grisons and the Southern Alps. Its colour is purple and the flower is very heary. It likes dry regions and sometimes covers a whole meadow, which is very impressive. I had the chance to see a lot of them on a High Plateau called Hellela, belonging to the village of Zeneggen. You can see another picture of this flower if you look under Claude Naef's (clnaef)last picture.

Hi Anne,

Very lovely capture of these beauties. The subdued light goes well with the fine-hair covered flowers.



Hallo Anne!

Die herrliche Hellela! Hmm, möchte gerne auch dort sein! Nun, dank deiner wunderbaren Fotografie bringst du sie mir in die gute Stube. Vielen Dank!



Bonsoir Anne,

Très bonne composition équilibrée. Je préfère cette photo à la précédente. Bonne profondeur de champ. J'aime beaucoup la forme en cloche de ces fleurs et leur texture. Très belles couleurs avec ces fleurs jaunes (boutons d'or?) en arrière plan.
Bonne soirée,


Hello Anne. Splendid capture of these beautiful flowers. TFS.
Regards, Bahadır

Guten Abend Anne,
Küchenschellen gehören zu meinen Lieblingspflanzen.
Diese Gruppe hast du mit großer Tiefenschärfe dargestellt.
Die feinen flauschigen Strukturen und die verhaltenen Farben
sind klar und naturnah reproduziert.
Eine wunderscheöne Miniatur-Landschaft.
Schöne Grüße, Peter

Hi Anne,
Lovely capture of these wildflowers. Excellent DOF/detail, and I like the yellow colors in your BG. Well composed and good low POV.
Hope you don't mind, I did a workshop to try and improve this fine image.

Un'altra splendida immagine di questo bellissimo fiore alpino, eccellenti POV e DOF, molto bella la composizione con i fiori che occupano quasi tutto il formato, ottima nitidezza, magnifici i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hi Anne

Lovely shot of these Pulsatilla - here they are more red and the local name is Dane's Blood - they are supposed to grow on the graves of the invading Danish where they were killed by Anglo-Saxon's!

Great detail and low POV.


Anne, I love this image for its extremely natural colours and the way you have selected the subjects to make it an aesthetically rich composition.
Great job and thanks for sharing another amazingly beautiful picture.

Hi Anne,
Another outstanding floral shot with very impressive sharpness, colours, lighting and exposure. I like the shape and formation of the flower and the natural surrounding. Great DOF isolates it from the Bg and the chosen low POV works well here in portraying them. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Bonjour Anne,
your gallery is full of wonderful images, this one is simply beautiful with warm but intense colours and a great brightness, brava
kind regards

Hi Anne, lovely composition with splendid flowers, wonderful soft colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Anne
Autres Pulsatilles, autres nuances de couleurs.
Merci à bientôt

Liebe Anne,
mein mündlicher Kommentar noch schriftlich: ausgezeichnet, dass Du dem Instinkt nach mehr Farbe und Kontrast nicht erlegen bist: das gedämpfte Licht verhalf zu einer sehr stimmungsreichen Landschaft. Toll gemacht!
Bis bald

Hola Anne, me gusta la composición de esta toma bien definida y con el color natural. Un saludo

Bonjour Anne,
Content de revoir tes images, après ta longue absence. Je me souviens que les puslsatilles te procurent beaucoup d'émotions. Tu as phonographié un très joli groupe de ces espèces.

Hi Anne,
As nice a picture as the earlier one. I somehow missed this one.
Thanks for sharing.

Bonjour Anne,
C'est bien composé, mais surtout très bien éclairé pour obtenir une telle précision des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
