Photographer's Note

This photo breaks with my last publications, and I change the architecture and the urban images by the natural life into the mountains of Andorra.

I took this photo the summer of 2011, during a beautiful walk along the Cam del Ferro (Way of the Iron), which joins Ordino with El Serrat, in which we can enjoy the nature, the silence, and at the same time discover some really fascinating mountain flowers, as this one, called Tora Blava in catalan, the official language in Andorra.
I tried a close-up with a high shutter speed in order to control the movement of these small and delicate flowers, which were moving because of the wind, while I was using a big aperture to get out of focus the background.

I hope you like the result.

It is a herbaceous perennial plant, with a height of more of 1 m, with the simple stem. It has a fusiforme beefy root with tubers of up to 15 cm of length, in the shape of turnips of pale color when they are young, and brown when they age. The stalked and alternate leaves they are palm-shaped deeply cut away, are rigid and some kind of coriceas, of green brilliant color, something clearer at its reverse. The flowers are big and attractive of blue color or violets from 3 to 4 cm of diameter. The fruit consists of 3 4 follicles or capsular pods that contain numerous wrinkled seeds.

Esta foto rompe con mis ltimas publicaciones, y cambio la arquitectura y las imgenes urbanas por la vida natural en las montaas de Andorra.

Tom esta foto el verano de 2011, durante un bello paseo a lo largo del Cam del Ferro (Camino del Hierro), que une Ordino con El Serrat, en el que podemos disfrutar de la naturaleza, el silencio, y al mismo tiempo descubrir algunas flores de montaa realmente fascinantes, como sta, llamada Tora Blava en cataln, el idioma oficial en Andorra.
Intent un macro con una alta velocidad de disparo para controlar el movimiento de estas pequeas y delicadas flores, que se movan por causa del viento, y utilizando una gran abertura para desenfocar el fondo.

Espero que os guste el resultado.
