[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cyclamen persicum is one of our most common and most beloved wild flowers. It starts blooming as early as October, , in some places even before the first rains, and blooms well into April. While abundant in most Mediterranean areas of Israel, it is still protected by law.

These two specimens grow from the same bulb, a rather early example of this flower. The flowers' color may range from pure white to deep pink.

Excellent pic, colours so bright and composition giving enough space to let the flowers "breath" by its starlike background. Beautiful lightplay on the petals. Thanks for the comment as well. Have a look at my "crocus"!

Clear and good composition. Are the leaf important for discription...?

Hello Ishi,
Beautiful cyclamen. TFS.

Bonjour Ishi,
Très intéressante publication malgré, me semble-t-il, la légère surexposition du sujet supérieur.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Ishi,

A very beautiful composition which has somehow a mystical sense in it created by the dark area below. Great light on the flowers.

Hello Ishi,
I love seeing these small Cyclamens in the wild, here we only get them in pots for indoors! These flowers stand out very sharply against the dark background. Lovely colours too. Well done!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
