This winter is dry and very cold in Israel. So very few flowers are out there. Belis silvestris is a typical winter perennial flower, found commonly in rocky places. Its nice to look at it from the back.

Hi Ori,
Beautiful capture of this flower. I liked the way you used the light a lot. TFS
Best wishes,

Well Ori, as you say it might be "nice to look at them from the back" since you obviously know their frontal aspect and this backlighted composition is really very nice, but please upload a frontal view too for us fellows who would also like to see them in the face!

beautiful macro, I like the light and colors. very nice photo.
TFS. Carme.

Hi Ori, this is a great creative shot with a fine pov. Perfect with the winter light showing through the delicate petals. I love the tones and shadows and the colours are rich and strong. You have perfect focus and dof. Wonderful all round.

Where there I did not find WINTER it was cool mist and raining but I did enjoy that with just one coat cap and muffler.
What I had studied in school that was proved and there has a unique soil and climate, that's why we call this holy land.
There I found every thing in its nature and beauty, when I eat a tomato I told my mate that it taste tomato and she also amazed, perhaps some time I was not far from you.
As these two are gazing the sun, also praising the LORD, KHUDA, GOD, BHAGWAAN for its creativity.

B. perenis is the only species in Romania from this genus

At least you have flowers in winter - there is nothing that grows where I live, even some of the evergreens need to be covered up.
Love the pov - look like they are illuminated from inside ..........

Hi Ori,

In light of the background shots of the plant opposite was very nice. TFS
