Hello Everyone,

I have had a real problem with an unco-operative mouse (not one to put on this site!) today but thank goodness it has been fixed!

Today I am posting some more of the beautiful wild flowers that I captured on the cliff top at St. David's, Pembrokeshire.

These bright yellow flowers look very much like dandelions but I think they are 'Beaked Hawk's-Beard'.
(As always, I am happy to be corrected if anyone know's better.)
They grew in small groups as shown on the photograph and made a very showy splash of colour. Nearby these flowers were campion, bindweed and thistles.

The coastal path around the cost of Pembrokeshire is free to walk and is an absolute must for people who like to photograph flowers, insects, birds and beautiful scenery!

Thank you for stopping by. Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of this photograph. :-)

My dear friend Bev,
You had done well again on this composition with right size and the right frame!
The pov is good with DOF on the main subject with clarity, the blue sky that included on the top right corner add a lot more coloration in the whole picture and makes it look warmer!
well composed and very well seen
keep it up!

Outstanding composition, Bev and the colours and details are fabulous! The bit of blue sky in the BG is perfect. This is a hands-down winner in your gallery!
P.S. We have those look-alikes here too, thanks for putting a name to them :)

Hi Bev,
feels like you caught a bit of summer in this shot! Good sharp focus and very vivid colour, i like it alot.

Hi Beverley,
Thanks for looking at my recent picture and writing your kind critique on it.
A glance at your portfolio reveals that flowers are your favourite theme. I find your flower compositions very charming. Your current post of these lovely yellow flowers delights the senses.
Thanks for sharing this lovely image and best regards.

Hi Beverly,
Lovely comp showing some colorful flowers contrasting nicely with the blue sky. Well captured.


Magnifique, doux et superbe composition, le bg aurait été plus beau sans cet arbre derrière mais la nature n'est pas plastique.

Hello Beverly,

Hello Beverley,
They are nice flowers and make themselves visible by the shining yellow petals!
I think I posted the same flower last year and someone told me they might be hawkweed but personally have no idea...
Well framed scenery, the blue sky makes a great background!

Hello Beverley,
I like tyhe complimentery colors here and the angle the flowers flow up through the scene. Excellent choice of depth and lighting...
