[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Brassica cretica is a coastal species, belonging to a group of Mediterranean species from which the garden cabbage was cultivated. In Israel it is found in a single population in lower Mt Carmel, just near the famous prehistoric man caves. In grows on a limestone cliff. Today we found the population (100-150 plants) in full bloom. It is a local endangered species, although it is found in a nature reserve on an inaccessible cliff.

Hello Ori,

You have shown nicely the flowers. The texture of the petals can be very well see due to the delicat shadows you have shown. There are also many color tones in your photo and a fine contrast with the background.

Thank you for sharing,

Merhaba Ori!
Bu çiçekler siyah zemin üzerinde gerçekten çok etkileyici görünüyorlar.


Bonsoir Ori
"jaune et noir" font bien ressortir les détails de la fleur
Merci amicalement

Bonjour Ori,
Très belle publication dans une superbe lumière et sous une excellente profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Bonsoir Ori,
Très beau chou. Son inflorescence me rappelle celle de Brassica montana, qui pousse dans nos collines.

Nicely captured, excellent detail and sharpness. Typical flowers for a Brassica, except a bit more pale shade of yellow than some. Very attractive image overall.
