This is Carduus crispus or Cirsium palustre. Many thanks to Ivan (Argus), Maurizio (maurydv) and Jurek (jurek1951) for ID!!
This photo was taken on saturday, during our trek through Beskid Zywiecki (this part is sometimes considered as Beskid Makowski).
Unfortunatelly again weather was bad. Almost all June in south of Poland the weather is bad this year. Fortunatelly it wasn't raining during our trek. But because of fog I couldn't have captured any nice landscape.
We started from Stryszawa went through Przelecz Koledowki (809m), near Koledowka (883m), Przelecz Opaczne (879m), Jalowiec (1111m), Przelecz Cicha (776m), near Opusniok (819m) and Solniska (849m) again to Stryszawa.
Thanks for visiting.

Hallo Maciek
I like the close approach here, this way displaying the lovely details in the finest possible way. The subject is well focused and the pink colour displays beautifully against the green backdrop. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Maciej,

Splendid work here Maciej with dramatic evaluation, the only thing that bothers me here is the over-sharpness hmmm,it throws the whole composition way out, unfortunately this one doe's not make the grade, sorry but better luck next time.
Best regards,

Bonjour Maciej,
Bonne composition valorisant relativement bien les sujets malgré un manque évident de profondeur de champ sur les deux fleurs du premier plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Maciej,

The tight frame is putting the flowers in evidence. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Carduus crispus. The afternoon light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


Jeśli Carduus, to raczej w górach C. personata, ale słusznie, może to być także Cirsium palustre. Jeśli nie masz zdjęcia pokrojowego, to identyfikacja będzie trudna.
