Linda's Alpine Flowers Page

Red and Pink Flowers
(except Orchids)


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 collection includes shots of over 500 species. The main page contains additional information, and links to the other pages in the set.
