Interesting note and flower - I like the reflections on the leaves as well

It's a pity the picture is much too overexposed, too much light on the leaves on the ground... But I know the flower can be very beautiful in pink, white or purple.
You are lucky to find them in the wildness, we have to buy them in a pot. ;o)

PS: I think the name is Cyclamen coum, from the Primulaceae family, but of course I'm not an expert...

This is actually quitw nice with the backlighting and the overall blue in the BG. I do not know the name but are sure these are bulbous plants, they sell a pink vesion in florists here with us. Normally, even numbers like, 2,4, does not make the same nice composition than uneven subject like 1, 3, wtc. However, here I think is looks very nice.

Not a "very showy" image Mohammad but i surely like it :) I mean, when you look at the thumbnail it doesnt look a very atractive image...but here the hard light works very well and those beautiful colors coming out from that "mess" are lovely. Good job :)

Nice photo Mohammad, excellent colours and good composition.

Very nice to see these Cyclamen in the wild, looks a little over exposed, but looks like it was under oak trees from the leaves I see making photos difficult. it would be nice to see some more notes added about the conditions surounding these wonderful plants I have loads of different, ones in my garden where their small size is of great use in my small garden

Very nice one, Mohammad. Maybe a bit luminous in some of the flowers' petals, but a very nice effect of the backlighting and a delightful natural composition. The DOF is well chosen, too.

Have a nice and relaxing vacation.

Great capture of these wild flowers - unknown to me - thanks Mohammad, for letting us see this fine image.

En France nous connaissons ces fleurs sous le nom de Cyclamen. Il en exite de nombreuses espèces de couleurs différentes du blanc au rose et au violet, comme le précise Viviane, mais aussi de tailles variables. Elles poussent aussi de façon sauvage, j'en ai eu un jour dans mon jardin et elles reviennent de temps en temps!
Ici on ne devine pas si elles sont de 2 couleurs ou si c'est l'effet de la lumière en contre-jour..(Je penche plus cette cette deuxième explication).
Well done Mohammad!

Strange light, but beautiful light, it's a little abstract now, I like it a lot !

I thin k the focus is here on the leafs instead doff the flowers, but still nice colors and compo.

Wow, thanks for showing this one, Mohammad, it is very nice to know that you have them in Iran too. A great soft image with wionderful addition of the fallen leaves on the ground. Very well done.

Very nice. I like to see the flowers coming out of the dry oak tree leaves forest ground cover. Indeed Cyclamen coum with typical round leaves vague in the backgrond of the photo. Ori

Very nice shot Mohammad , I like it.


Very nice photo.

These are Cyclamen, few are aware that there is a showy small autumn flowers hardy type of Cyclamen. The small flowers provide an abundance of color in the autumn garden and the delicate two-toned mottled leaves are also noteworthy during the spring, summer and fall growing seasons.

Beautiful colors and judicious composition.

Beautiful!Thank you so much for this delight. CarOze

hi mohammad,
a really nice shot. an excellent composition. i think if you had reduced the light, you could show the color of the flowers more beautiful.

Hi Mohammad,
What an amazing flower... and I can´t belive that it grows in winter! I would like to make it grow in my home... Thanks for the note.
I agree with Robbrown about the light. There is too much light over the leave on the ground, but I like it on the flowers... Above that, composition is great: those violet colours over dark leaves looks wonderful.
