This time of year is dandelion season, and the flower is really brightening the landscape providing fine colour contrast with the greenery!

No macro this time, rather a wide view to show the impact from this colourful plant in the landscape.


Update June 6:

Happy National Day to all our Swedish friends!

Hi Pablo,
A wonderful landscape of that flowered dandelion!
It's very impressive the way the back hill is almost full covered by the yellow of the flowers.
Certainly a great colour contrast.
I think you builded a magnificent composition here, with a great gradation on the sky.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Pablo, splendid landscape with great colors of nature and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

I like very much the nice saturated colors ... Great shot

And what a fantastic landscape this is!
This is actually such a beautiful scenery that it does not need to be focus on one element, but rather on the entire view...you did a great job and choice, my friend!

The way that these lovely dandelions brighten up the picture here is impressive and, together with that perfect blue sky, create such a harmonious sight! Add to that a patch of green and brown trees and you'll get a brilliant composition!
Truely superb is all ways!

Bravo and TFS

Hola Pablo,
precioso paisaje "pintado" maravillosamente,
bello pov y dof. sensacional habitat.

Hello Pablo,
Well contrasted & saturated colors. Great detail as well. The CP is a pain from my experience, with the lights direction important in getting the shot, without the uneven blue sky effect..
Did you rotate the CP to reduce this? This landscape looks nice with all the flowers blooming. Perhaps less sky and more landscape?

hi pablo,
lovely landscape, the colours look very lovely, well composed shot, nice pov, simple but effective framing,
well done,
tfs & regards

Hello Pablo,
Beautiful landscape,looks like a painting.Well caught,framed and composed.Colors,POV and visual impact are also wonderful.

I like this simple composition it is so clean and clear. This truly is wonderful shot.
Best wishes,

Hi Pablo. I love to see your trade-mark blue skies and this is a beauty. Well composed landscape with splashes of bright colours. It is well cropped to give this split between flatlands, hills and sky. TFS. Murray.

Hi Pablo,
Wonder landscape picture. Perfect pov and composition. Colors are vivid and well contrasted. TFS this brilliant picture.

Hi Pablo,
This is really magnificent. I've never seen that many dandelions in one location. It completely changed the landscape by adding such a dominant color. The blue sky made the flowers standout even more. I also like the different shades of green form the different types of trees.

Hello Pablo,
This is a very represenative picture of spring. Blue sky, hills with flowers. I appreciate especially the composition of the picture, having left a good part to the sky. Really peaceful landscape, a place to rest.
Thank's and best regards

Hi Pablo,
Obviously this in not macro, but this is an excellent landscape shot. Lovely vivid colors, I assume that this captured with wide angle lens or zoom lens set at shortest focal length.
Well done, my dear friend!


bonjour pablo
c'est impressionnant le nombre de fleur de pissenlit que l'on peut voir sur cette photo.
le contraste entre les differentes couleurs est superbe.

Those colours are just wonderful. Dandelions are regarded as weeds but your shot just shows their beauty. Lovely idea to mark the Swedish National day

Simply great lighting and colours (combination of tremendous blue and wonderful yellow colour tones are wonderful). POV and composition are outstanding as well as the details and sharpness.

How much I like it! It looks like a paradise for the lovers of Nature. It's a beautiful view to see so many dandelions on the field, but those trees make a delightful scene too.

Hi Pablo, excellent landscape shot with incredible contrasts in your colours. I don't think I've ever seen so many dandelions in one shot. Your very rich beautiful colours work very well together in this composition.

Thanks, John

Gorgeous vivid colors. The yellows and blues are remarkable!
The line of the hill is a wonderful divider creating a classic division.

Yes! Pablo
The colors are truley belongning to your neighbour country
long live the scandinavian friendship!

you have used that sky to amplify and make the yellow areas sing...good technique boss
i have only seen a field of dandelion round here once..in a ploughed field which hadnt been...a bit irish that..fallow i guess
as usual you get hard edged images to blend nicely and frame them well

Belle photo de ces nous dirons champs de fleurs jaunes et jolies.ce melange jaune et vert est jolis. Amitiés Thomas

Gee, what a nice sharp images with great depth of focus. That is a lot of dandelion! It looks wonderful in the field... not so wonderful in one's lawn! I really like this photo. I like the crispness of it, the rich color and the interesting shapes of the composition.

I hear it makes good wine! I also hear the leaves are good for spring tonic. I can see why folks like this picture so much!!!

Hello Pablo,

Hello Pablo,

The yellow colour between the green environment gives a excellent composition, nice for looking Pablo.

Have a nice weekend,

Bonsoir Pablo,
Excellent composition of the beautiful landscape covered by the yellow flowers, (Dandelion) great colors comme d'habitude et toujours de superbes photos, très jolie photo pittoreste..Le ciel est magnifique supers Pablo..
Mes salutations

Hello Pablo,
great landscape composition with wonderful colour, POV and details
very well done

Lovely! And to think the world spends millions (maybe even billions) to eradicate the 'weed'. In our mountains, the bears gorge on the young shoots of dandelions. Dandelion salad is a healthy choice!

Hi Pablo,
This is a glorious image, the dandelion's look wonderful. They are not as pretty in my garden dotted here and there. The contrasting layers of colours look just superb. The sky is such a beautiful blue. All round a wonderful composition.

I missed out this beautiful image during the time I was off TN due to internet failure for about 4 days, Pablo. Even now, it is behaving erratically.
The combination of green and yellow is pehaps the most appealing in nature and we humans also create it sometimes through our crop patterns. In India, we see this combination during mustard and sunflower season.
This beautiful picture soothes my eyes during this harshest period of heat in the desert.
The composition is simply marvellous.
Thanks for calming my mind through your wonderful creation, my friend.

Hi Pablo

What a wonderful landscape. The colours are amazing and the detail is really sharp. The 3 colours really compliment each other superbly and the composition is spot on.


Hello Pablo !
What an awesome picture ! It looks like a wonderful painting. I love the intense and vivid colors, and the composition is simply perfect. Meadows, flowers and forest under a blue sky, there is nothing that could be more beautiful. You live in a fantastic place, and with you camera and your talent, you can share this paradise with us.

Hi Pablo,
Exquisite shot with amazing colours and beautiful layers in the landscape. The atmosphere and the ambience is wonderfully portrayed in all their glory. Lovely blueeee sky and the yellow flowers looks majestic. Immaculate colour contrasts and a great POV to illustrate it. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

What a beautiful image Pablo!
I like these yellow mood and this green and this blue sky.

Always nice works from you!


Hi Pablo,
Very nice landscape, it seems dandelions inspire You so much. And it's good, because You photograph them in a very clever way. It's great there's a lot of sky, and I like this soft yellow so much, too. A stunning composition. Bravo.
Have a nice weekend, László

PS: where's the green in the Swedish flag? :)

Wow, are they raising them to eat? a lot of our neighbors in Chicago, ate them.

Hello Pablo. I like the new avatar in the intro page :-) This is an excellent catch of your favorite flower during the dandelion season. I like the field with layers of trees to another pasture filled with beautiful yellow flowers. Very interesting and wonderful view. TFS and best regards. Jusni
