Linda's Alpine Flowers Pages

Groups, Meadows and Views
aka 'Calendar Shots'

This page is part of Linda's collection photographs of flowers in European mountains, mostly alpine (roughly 1800-2500m) and sub-alpine (roughly 1200-1800 m), but with a few from lower altitudes.

The main page contains additional information, and links to the other pages in the set – which show individual flower species, sorted by colour. The collection includes shots of over 600 species.
