[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Centaurea montana.
Many thanks to Sigfried (siggi), Yiannis (yiannis) and Ori (fragman) for ID!!!
This photo was taken in July, during our trek through Slovakian West Tatras.
We started from Hutianskie Sedlo (950m), went throung Sivy vrch (1805m), Brestova (1934m), Salatin (2048m), Brestova again (1934m), and Chata Zverovka.
Weather was quite good. I think no rain. No high temperature. But a lot of fog and clouds.
Thanks for visiting.
