The Pannonian Plain is a large plain in Central Europe that remained when the Pliocene Pannonian Sea dried out. It is a geomorphological subsystem of the Alps-Himalaya system.
The river Danube divides the plain roughly in half.
The plain is divided among Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine.
The plain is roughly bounded by the Carpathian mountains, the Alps, the Dinaric Alps and the Balkan mountains.
Although rain is not plentiful, it usually falls when necessary and the plain is a major agricultural area; it is sometimes said that these fields of rich loamy loess soil could feed the whole of Europe. For its early settlers, the plain offered few sources of metals or stone. Thus when archaeologists come upon objects of obsidian or chert, copper or gold, they have almost unparalleled opportunities to interpret ancient pathways of trade.
The precursor to the present plain was a shallow sea that reached its greatest extent during the Pliocene, when three to four kilometres of sediments were deposited.
The plain was named after the Pannonians, a northern Illyrian tribe. Various different peoples inhabited the plain during its history. In the first century BC, the eastern parts of the plain belonged to the Dacian state, and in the first century AD its western parts were subsumed into the Roman Empire. The Roman province named Pannonia was established in the area, and the city of Sirmium, today Sremska Mitrovica, Serbia, became one of the four capital cities of the Roman Empire in the 3rd century.

Tussilago farfara / Colt's-foot UK/ Huflattich GE / Følfod DK / hestehov No
Like the yellow splashes standing between grass and weed, a cute little wild flower.
It is often found in colonies of dozens of plants. The flowers, which superficially resemble dandelions, appear in early spring before dandelions. Leaves do not appear usually until after the seeds are set. The plant is typically between 10 - 30cm.
Coltsfoot is native to several locations in Europe and Asia. It is also a common plant in North America and South America where it has been introduced, most likely by settlers as a medicinal item.
I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called yellow ~ColdPlay

A mix of green and yellow on Falmer hill. The yellow from the rapeseeds is starting to fade quite quickly now and by the end of next week will probably be a greeny brown, so I am lucky to capture what I did.
Bright as the sunshine today yellow ranunculus,belongs to the buttercup family, also called little frog in latin.

Yellow Chrysanthemum - Hubby came home with some lovely flowers for me this evening :-) so just had to take a photo or two ;-) I used the flash but covered it up with tissue paper to get a softer light and with manual settings to get the speed and depth of field that I wanted :-) quite pleased with the final results :-)
We haven't been able to enjoy our Strawflowers in several months... the heat is just too much for them. As you can see, these were taken back in February when the garden is much nicer than it is in summer. Since I miss them so much I brought them back to life today and added some texture from Kerstin Frank. www.flickr.com/photos/kerstinfrank-design/4387891004/
Wasatch Mountains, Utah, USA
I visited this area as a young boy, long ago. I come back frequently to the area, and somehow kept forgetting to stop here. Thanks to a recent post by fellow photographer, Christian Peay, it reminded me of a treasure hidden in the Wasatch Mountains. So I jumped in the Jeep with my son, prepped for a journey to the pre-destined location. Upon arrival, I packed my gear, and hiked up to this spot with master photographers Dustin LeFevre, Peter Irwindale, Emily Dickey.
The hike was grueling, well at least for me, since I am an older, overweight guy. Upon reaching the lake, I knew I only had single-digit minutes to setup and capture what I wanted. I extended the tripod legs, affixed the camera, and snapped this multiple-exposure shot. The wind created an insatiable glow. And just two minutes later the sun began receding from view.
Yellow a flower
the green wheel a field
and their I stand
with you up in the middle
a rainbow hangs from your finger.

Thanks for visiting!
Project 52, week 14
This weeks prompt was "Yellow"
This was again an experiment that I started with full confidence that I could do it, but I soon noticed that this wasn't as easy as I thought it would be :-)
I've seen wonderful images of paper and I wanted to try to do that too. I thought how hard can that be, I just roll the papers and I get beautiful curls and that's it.
Well, papers don't make pretty curls or at least mine didn't, so finally i just made a roll of the papers and fastened them with a paperclip and here's the result of that :)
And pretty please, hit L.
I have found this common yellow flower at the botanical garden.

We've got some Yellow Day Lillies in the garden. The sun has been out and the flowers are looking quite spectacular.
So it was out with the camera and macro extension tubes.....
Another flower from our garden this spring. A vivid yellow Osteospermum, looking like a blazing sun.
Early opening of a yellow wildflower. Fragile and not damaged. The future awaits it appearance. Insects too, I suspect.

It's a long time since my last update. My son had a long spring holiday and I have had some health issues to tackle.
This butterfly, yellow tip, has only one generation a year and can be found only in spring time.
Beautiful yellow Calendula shot at HIHT in jolly grant.
Calendula (Ca-lén-du-la, pot marigold) is a genus of about 12-20 species of annual or perennial herbaceous plants in the daisy family Asteraceae, native to the area from Macaronesia east through the Mediterranean region to Iran. Calendula should not be confused with other plants that are also known as marigolds, such as plants of the genus Tagetes, corn marigolds or marsh marigolds.
The name Calendula stems from the Latin kalendae, meaning first day of the month, presumably because pot marigolds are in bloom at the start of most months of the year. The common name marigold probably refers to the Virgin Mary, or its old Saxon name 'ymbglidegold', which means 'it turns with the sun'. Marigolds typically bloom quickly (in under two months) in bright yellows, reds, and oranges throughout the summer and well into the fall.
Marigolds are considered by many gardening experts as one of the most versatile flowers to grow in a garden, especially since it is easy to grow. Seeds sown in the spring, in most soils, will germinate freely in sunny or half-sunny locations. They do best, however, if planted in sunny locations with rich, well-drained soil. The leaves are spirally arranged, 5-18 cm long, simple, and slightly hairy. The flower heads range from pastel yellow to deep orange, and are 3-7 cm across, with both ray florets and disc florets. They have a spicy aroma and are produced from spring to autumn in temperate climates. It is recommended to deadhead (removal of dying flower heads) the plants regularly to maintain even blossom production.

"Tremella mesenterica (common names include yellow brain, golden jelly fungus, yellow trembler, and witches' butter) is a common jelly fungus in the Tremellaceae family of the Agaricomycotina. It is most frequently found on dead but attached and on recently fallen branches, especially of angiosperms, as a parasite of wood decay fungi in the genus Peniophora. The gelatinous, orange-yellow fruit body of the fungus, which can grow up to 7.5 cm (3.0 in) diameter, has a convoluted or lobed surface that is greasy or slimy when damp. It grows in crevices in bark, appearing during rainy weather. Within a few days after rain it dries into a thin film or shriveled mass capable of reviving after subsequent rain. This fungus occurs widely in deciduous and mixed forests and is widely distributed in temperate and tropical regions that include Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North and South America. Although considered bland and flavorless, the fungus is edible. Tremella mesenterica produces carbohydrates that are attracting research interest because of their various biological activities.
The fruit body has an irregular shape, and usually breaks through the bark of dead branches. It is up to 7.5 cm (3.0 in) broad and 2.5 to 5.0 cm (1.0 to 2.0 in) high, rounded to variously lobed or brain-like in appearance. The fruit body is gelatin-like but tough when wet, and hard when dry. The surface is usually smooth, the lobes translucent, deep yellow or bright yellow-orange, fading to pale yellow, rarely unpigmented and white or colorless. The fruit bodies dry to a dark reddish or orange. The spores, viewed in mass, are whitish or pale yellow." - WiKi
"De gele trilzwam (Tremella mesenterica) is een trilzwam uit de familie Tremellaceae.
De gele trilzwam is het gehele jaar door, maar vooral in voorjaar en late herfst, te vinden op takken van loofbomen en struiken. De soort is algemeen in België en Nederland.
Het vruchtlichaam heeft een doorsnede van 1 tot 5 cm en is onregelmatig hersenachtig geplooid. Het komt tevoorschijn uit spleten in boomschors en is eerst geel en later bleekgeel gekleurd. In droge toestand verandert de substantie van geleiachtig tot kraakbeenachtig taai en ook donkerder van kleur." - WiKi
