I like how you could picture these flowers of a sempervivum montanum (Joubarbe des montagnes) in front of the dark background where still some structures are visible. It makes the flowering twin beautyfully stand out.
Also the other photos remind me of wonderful hikes in the Alps. I never have seen the Echinops in fourth picture in the mountains. They obviously do not grow in the Austrian Alps where I use to go in summer. This year however it's not certain whether I can go there because of the damned virus ...
This would be a good contribution to our theme ... ;-)
Greetings from sunny but cool Westphalia!
