Bruno D'Amicis - May


Globeflowers are extremely rare in Southern Europe. These attractive plants are related to moist and cold meadows, requirements seldom matched in the Mediterranean habitats. In Abruzzi, the Italian region, where I live, they have been found just in a very few locations. I know, or ,better, a friend of mine showed me a secret place: a narrow valley, where, in a stretch no more than 80 metres long, dozens of these flowers are packed together. It takes about 20 minutes of pilgrimage with rubber boots through a swampy field to reach this spot. We still don’t know wheter it is wise to advertise it or not…

    It's quite interesing that the best pics of a subject come from where they are rare. And this is one of the best, if not THE best pic of globeflower environment I've seen so far. No double exposure tricks and still dreamy, patches of yellow in the right places etc. Is it because when it's rare, more effort is put into it?

    Bruno, don't tell the longitude/latitude coordinates ;.P.

    Yes, globe flowers are quite common in Estonia, but it is always difficult to find a good spot to photograph them. I don't even remember seeing a plcae with such density you have here.
