[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These flowers looked so beautiful all by themselves that I had to stop and capture the moment.
This photo was taken in the Tankwa Karoo 250Km North of Cape Town.
The species is: Mesembryanthemum eurystigmatum = Eurystigma clavatum (Mesembryanthemaceae)
When you Google the name you should find a vey beautiful macro of this flower.

Hallo Steve
Images like these gives me goose bumps. Blue sky, far outstretched gravel road, mountains in the far distance and off course the beautiful yellow flowers right front of my eyes. I wish this image was mine, as this is the types of images I would love to capture. The depth of field is great. Thanks for sharing such a lovely landscape. Best regards.

Splendid image, Steve!
Beautiful perspective and great depth; excellent sharpness and lightness; wonderful natural colours. Very well done!

Hello Steve,
The low POV really gives this shot a unique look. Love the fine detail and natural coloration. The exposure is right on the money and the DOF is incredible. Great work!!
