Wild flowers are one of our most enduring sources of pleasure allowing us to find fascination in even the most barren pieces of waste ground and transform a trip to the countryside into an experience of enchantment. Road verges are the life-giving arteries of the countryside, linking habitats and acting as vital corridors for wildlife to thrive on. They also represent a remnant of our native grassland which has suffered heavy losses over the last century and they are acting as buffers to some of the most impoverished areas, be they six lane motorways or intensively farmed fields. They are the single most viewed habitat in the country, giving millions of people every day direct contact with the changing seasons and colors of the countryside. They also provide distinct local character to each region, from the flower rich hedgerows of South Jutland and Funen to the heather covered land verges of Midjutland. In fact, two-thirds of all Danish wildflower species occur somewhere on roadside verges.

A most useful and informative note that casts the humble roadside verge in an entirely new light. I like the composition, which is pleasantly lit and has good colours and sharpness. The splashes of red offered by the poppies really stand out against the green. Innovative and instructive nature photography.

Very nice vey of these wild flowers. A great mix of colors. A different view of Denmark often not shared. Not over saturated or sharpened ... very natural looking. TFS

Hello dear Harriet,
this is a very attractive and delightful picture, with vibrant natural colours and very fine textures. The simple composition is defined by a subtle and elegant diagonal and the fleeting clouds provide a lovely complement and juxtaposition. The light plays a great role in bringing out this beauty. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

To my mind the humble poppy, growing in the millions across fields and along roads and railways, is the most beautiful of all flowers. No wonder it has fascinated generations of painters and photographers. Here they form a fine diagonal, sharing space with well matching plants of various tones of green and white. The fine light and sharpness, and the view of the pleasantly looking clouds, underscore the atmosphere of a lovely day in summer.

perfetta nella composizionee e ricca di dettagli questa foto incanta per il piacevole contrasto tra il verde della vegetazione, ricchissimo di dettagli e l'azzurro movimentato dalle nuvole del cielo.
L'inserimento nella composizione dei papaveri e degli altri fiori bianchi completa a meraviglia il soggetto che si fa ammirare anche per i colori decisi e complementari che convivono in perfetta armonia.
Ciao e buona domenica

maloutim (9629) 2013-07-04 18:42
What an artistic capture of these wild flowers particularly well highlighted by the poppies, against the beautiful blue sky ! A real pleasure to the eye ! They must have made your day !
Very interesting note about the importance of wild vegetation which we are lucky to still enjoy, hopefully for a long time, if humans allow them to grow.
I think they are very cunning and always find a way to live in the most unexpected places. Or Here.
danos (83529) 2013-07-07 1:02

Frisch zurück "aus dem Süden" gefällt mir dieses farbenfrohe Bild ganz besonders. Der Bildaufbau, dieser Blick leicht aufwärts, "hat was" und das Zusammenspiel der Farben ist faszinierend. Sommer pur ...
Der Kommentar ist wieder richtig lesenswert ...
Alles Gute aus dem sommerlichen und sonnigen Westfalen!

That poem you create in June. The best moment for "coquelicots". Your Canon realized very well your idea and inspiration. The composition remember me French artist Gaston Thiery which painted many time the similar.
All the best dear friend. So glad to meet you here in sunny day.
shevchenko (19051) 2013-08-30 5:23
Good low angle shot to frame the wild flowers and blue sky, nice nature view in a sunny day, there is full with relaxing feel too, distinct color, good sharpness, well done.
annjackman (18089) 2013-08-31 22:13
This is a very fine capture of this roadside verge. The clarity is very good with all the delicate detail of the vegetation that is studded with those gorgeous, red poppies. The excellent exposure has given an interesting blue sky as BG with delicate clouds that have retained detail.
Kind Regards, Ann

Marvelous picture,wild flowers are so beautiful! A charming photo, very sensible.
NorthernLight (1555) 2013-12-13 1:11
eine sehr schöne Wildblumenwiese. Mir gefallen Blumen lebendig in ihrer natürlichen Umgebung viel besser als gepflückt oder abgeschnitten in einer Vase. Wie in Deinem Bild. Kräftige bunte Farben vor einem blauen Himmel. Da möchte man doch glatt dazwischen auf einer Decke auf dem Rücken liegen und den Moment genießen.
Wenn da nur nicht all die Spinnen und Ameisen wären. ;-)
jmdias (52918) 2014-01-02 14:15
a marvelous view, full of colors. the image make me remember the impressionist gardens. precious use of the lower pov and light. TFS.
