I was wondering about this plant,I saw it in "Alborz" mountains,in north of Iran,2100 meter above sea level.
But a very strange thing,It was only one,just it,in this shot,I searched more and more around it,but I didn't find one more.
It has a 45~50 cm tall,and as you see a strange fruit in end of the branch.
I have not seen it before,name?!!oh no!how do I find it?!:)
Also weather was 18 degree C with a high humidity.

I hope you enjoy.

Life must be lonely for this little plant. You did an excellent job in capturing this. The detail in the shadow between the plant and the rock is clearly visable. I like the composition too. Thanks for posting,

Hi Mohammad, what a beautiful colour, very nice detail, everything clear and sharp.

Nice one, Mohammad - good contrast between the textured rock and the colorful flower. Well composed.

Hi Mohammad, great image the plant is well seen , rocks a little over bright but it does look like a difficult capture betwwen light and shade , it might be worth trying using the flash to even things up.
I think it is some form of hypericum possible palatum? , but have not double checked this, what you could do now is go to google/images and type in the name and see if you think it matches , you might have to try and limit the search as there are a lot of species both wild and cultivated, The common name is St. Johnswort, the wort bit of the name usually means that it has medicinal properties.Have fun looking if you run into problems drop me a line and we will see what we can do.

Seems like a strange place to grow. Considering that it has only one berry it does not seem like the best place though.

Great contrasts and color

We have a saying in my language that says, roughly translated - a dime's worth of red beautyfies! And without the red berry, this picture would never have the same impact. Well done!

Excellent shot. I agree with the critiques. The red makes this photo special. Great work.

A little coloured nature-detail between the rocks, nice seen, Mohammad !

Very nice composition with the red berry, and tthe structure of the rocks.. good job !!

Salam Mohammad,
I feel bad because I don't know what the plant is. But I learnt something from RobBrown. I am writing here because of the photographic value of your composition. Its a bit poetic to me. A singular plant with a red berry in a rocky surrounding. Sign of God's charity.

One of many things very interesting with TrekNature
is that we can discover so many beauties aroud the world. And it's what you did. This picture is a good example.
Very nice composition and framing. The difference between the grey and the green is interesting.
And the red of the fruit. magic!!
