Picture of wood anemone (nemorosa flower) with purple primula flowers as background
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera May 31st 2008. Click image for larger view.
In this picture I have photographed a wood anemone flower (anemone nemorosa) with some purple primula flowers as background. I loved the contrast with the sun shining on the white wood anemone flower and the the primula flowers in the shadow. These beautiful small flowers are also known as windflower, European thimbleweed and smell fox.

The wood anemone flowers is a sure sign that the spring is here and that summer is right around the corner.
Flowers are popping up everywhere now so expect more pictures of flowers from Northern Norway in the near future. You can also check out my previous pictures of flowers here.

    Great contrast between white and purple flowers! Love it. You would find lots of tropical flowers to photograph in Hawaii!

    Excellent work, Thomas. The DOF is perfect, setting off the anemone from the background so well.
