Hi Ferran,
very sharp image in a very simple but beautiful composition. the sharp white flowers against a blurry dark background make it so captivating.
Lovely view of this unique flower.
Well done.


Dear Ferran!

This picture is just beautiful! I like the strong contrast between the main subject and the background very much. This highlights the plants beauty at best. Moreover, the colours of the background and the plant suit very well and create a pleasant impact.

Kind regards


Hola Ferran! Amazing shot, perfect macro, ideal contrast and sharpness, very good light and bright. Good exposure. Original work. Good luck!

Interesant treball amb la llum i les formes. La compressió suposo que li resta qualitat. Delicades tonalitats ben captades.
Bon diumenge Ferran.

Bonjour Ferran,
Très belle et artistique macro dans une lumière remarquablement maitrisée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Ferran, splendid close-up shot of this lovely flower head of a plant. Details and colours are excellent.
TFS and regards, Bahadır

Dear Ferran,
YOUR NOTES: How many years did you have to study to become a Botanist?

I goggled myself into a cul de sac i.e.the red list - just trying to follow-up your notes. Is Melica bocquetii Talavera actually really on the red list?

YOUR PHOTO: The perfect focus of the white fluff against the soft background brings to mind le corp de ballet in a Tchaikovsky performance, and your choice of font for the copyright provides the soloist...

Beautiful work of an interesting grass.

Have a good week,
Warm Regards
PS have you been home skiing?

Hi Ferran

The exquisite and delicate beauty as only nature can prepare and present. You did
a fine job to spot, to evaluate, and to identify the superbly wonderful potential of this
magnificent opportunity to capture such simplistic splendour. Even in the small and
sometimes seemingly insignificant one can find the most awesome designs. All that
it needs is a sensitive eye to recognise it and a skilful hand (ok, a good camera too)
to capture it, and then TrekNature is the perfect base to come and share it
with the whole world.

To you and your loved ones I wish a wonderful, healthy, and a prosperous 2010.

Well done and TFS.

Hola Ferran.

En primer lugar, un excellente año en el comienzo de esta año nuevo para usted y sus seres queridos.

Gracias por esta foto de la melica de roca.
La composición y la nitidez están muy bueno. Las colores y las contrastes son también perfectos. Interesante información.

Esperamos pronto verte de nuevo en TrekNature.
Hasta luego

Hello Ferran,
