It was a treat to see these alpine masque flowers again - even though it was bitingly cold as we waited with frozen fingers for the sun to slowly creep over the ridge.

Composite image merged in Helicon Focus and processed in PS.

I hope the busy foreground is not too distracting - I tried to keep the environment natural and refrained from overt "selective gardening".

Beautiful image Sinuhe. Excellent work with the stacking. The grasses are fine and a boon, showing no gardening.
Make your life spectacular!

The natural look works perfectly for me, Sinuhe. The delicate foreground grasses anchor the beautiful flowers and stems very nicely. Lovely image!

Oh, so lovely- I am so very fond of these fuzzy flowers, and these are gorgeous. The grasses add a natural element that I like, too.

Pretty grouping of the nodding blooms, the grasses at the bottom are a nice addition.

Thank you all for your kind comments - especially regarding a more natural look - it's so easy to be swayed by current fads!
