[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The explosion of the flowers in the arctic is fantastic, growing between snow banks and storms. The summer is very short and it's a rush to get the sun light.
Sorry, i don't what specie it is.
I crop this macro image and increase saturation and contrast.

Hello Frank,
Very beautiful capture of these Mountain Avens (Dryas Octopetula). Great sharpness and lovely colours. I really like the way you've bent down to get the background in as well. Excellent composition.
TFS, Ulla

Bonjour Franck,
Tu as réussi un très beau portrait de groupe de ces fleurs, on mettant en valeur toutes leuts caractéristiques (pétales et feuilles) et en montrant dans quel milieu elles se développent. J'aime beaucoup.

Presentación estupenda con magnífico colorido y bellos detalles.
Bienvenido a TN.
Saludos, JL.

great wide look, TFS Ori
