[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Beautiful flowers are lots of different kinds in the beautiful grassy plains, steep valleys, big mountains, friendly villages, fragrant forests or might be at the side of some mysterious paths to an unknown world...

There these beautiful flowers are blossoming... Even we don't know why they were blossoming there, The Mighty Painter is drawing them for us to see, to enjoy, to make us happy and appreciate... That Mighty Painter draws them, even if no one see their blossoming... Those poetries is written on that beautiful landscapes and i'm eager to appreciate, this is why i'm walking alone to those forests or any other landscapes. Just me, my camera and the earphones which attached to my ears... i don't want anyone with me, i just want to walk leisurely... and just to meet myself, to listen, to understand myself and become a friend of mine...

In my opinion, one should understand oneself and only then one can understand the life on earth... and all the secrets in the forests... all the cyphers in the single cell or in the whole galaxies... Nothing is different... all are pointing the same direction and all are written in the same codes... To solve and understand these codes, one should walk alone to the unknown paths... paths to the unknown forests of the unknown mountains...

one should walk alone to that forgotten landscapes to make them known... at least make them known to himself...

The beautiful flower is an orchis laxiflora -Lax-flowered orchid in English or Orchis à fleurs lâches in French.

In Turkish it's called "salep orkidesi"... One of the kinds of the orchid family is used to produce nice flaouvered famous Maras icecream... Nice flavour comes from the "saleb" or you can call it orchid... The maras icecream are also known because of it's thick form...

*** Special thanks to Yiannis for the true identification... (i made a wrong identification before)

Thank you for sharing your beautiful photo and writings. Your orchid is Orchis laxiflora.

Merhaba Ersin Bey,
Nadir ve güzel bir orkide türümüzün harika bir fotoğrafı. Salep yapmak için çoğu orkide türümüz tükenme sınırına yaklaştı.
Elinize sağlık,

  • Great

Merhaba Ersin,
very pretty orchid with its longs and detailed stalk and flowers. Nicely composed and shown in pleasant view of color control.
Well seen in simple isolation.
