English name : Alpine anemone or Alpine pasque flower – Scientific name : Pulsatilla alpina – Family : Ranunculaceae.
Description : Perennial plant of mountain which opens out in calcareous ground from May to July and meets in rocks and pastures of the high mountains of 1000 with 2800m of altitude.
The solitary flower from 4 to 8cm is white and protected from the cold by a coating of tiny hairs.
The stem, high 15 to 35 centimetres, is less hairy than that of the other similar species.
The fluffy globular seed heads are delightful and these ripen comparatively rapidly to release their wind-blown seeds.
Photo : Resized and framed in 800x600 for TN.
This photo was made above the Chinaillon at 2000m altitude.

Bonjour Christian, jolie fleur de montagne d'un blanc pur, trés bon piqué. Il est dommage que le rocher coté droit soit aussi clair. Mes félicitations pour ce beau tableau, Didier.

Very fresh and inviting flower. Beautiful, natural colors. I like it a lot.



Hi christian I looked at the map last night and realised I have Kayaked a lot of the rivers round you, and I think the wildlife and scenery you have is superb, lucky you.
this is an intresting if well over exposed flower, very difficult to do with such a white flower, you almost need sunglasses to veiw it on the screen it is so bright. I think there are details to be seen in the whites at the back so it might be worth a gentle pass with the burntool at a low level and soft edged brush to see if any thing comes up.

Hello Christian.
Personal assessment of the photo: great. Elle ressemble à s'y méprendre à nos Anémones du Canada.
Strong visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: complete et bilingue.
Thank you very much for sharing.
Have a good weekend.

Jolie fleur qui attire le regard par le mélange de blanc et jaune. Très belle définition aussi. Les couleurs sont natuelles et bien contrastées et la composition me plaît beaucoup.
