Hello dear Ori my neighbour today,

I don't believe in my eyes! What kind a plant this! I've never seen befor a spiral formed leaved plant like this. It must be a bulbus plant, isn't? I wonder its flower. If you find it please show us.

In Turkey we have from the same genus Kum zambagi (sand lily)(Pancratium maritimum), but its leaves are not in spiral form.

Shadows of leaves give richness to the photo. I like it. Bravo and TFS.


shalom Ori,
we call this beautiful herb "Kum Zambağı", translation with "Sand Lily". it is very beautiful white flowers. you nicely find it with spiral leaves above very beautiful sandy biotop. focus, POV/DOF and comosition superb as like exposure and colors. TFS, best wishes
PS: I read Fevzi's message after mine. same name:)

Bonjour Ori,
Je préfère cette publication à ta précédente sur le même sujet car le sujet y est nettement mieux représenté et valorisé ; très bon effet graphique, bien utilisé, de l'ombre du sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Very artistic photo.

Hello Ori!

Interesting plants - looks almost like an abstraction.Wellcomposed picture!


Ciao Ori. Intrigant and interesting this spiral strange plant thath you've captured in very good DOF and details. Very well the shadow on the sand. Well done.

Hi Ori, I like many of your nature photos and this is certainly an unusually unique and beatiful specimen. Good sharpness and colours. TFS. Murray.
