Such a beauitul image, I am not sure why but as soon as I opened this I got a beautiful tranquil feeling as if I was sitting in a summer garden, I could smell the scent of the lilli in the air and I felt so peaceful. A wonderful art that you could capture all that in an image, well done!

beautiful shot, it gives a sense of cooling down in a hot day.
to be a little critique, i loved it more with less depth of field. and, I think you had better shot it earlier in the morning or later in the evening, in other words, i think you have shot it at noon and Iranian summer noons burn photos!

@Ali Baratian: Thank you very much for your attention.Yes I think it was around 11 am when I took this shot.But it was really impossible to me to be there at another time on that day,in fact it was a great opportunity to capture these unique flowers.I`v gone to Daamaash three times,but only this time(3 month ago)was the right time to see these beautiful rare lilies.
Wonderful and special image of these liliums. Great color and very good sharpness.

Beautiful shot, what lovely coloured wild lily flowers. They remind me of a garden variety I grow in my back garden, the shape is the same, but they are bright yellow. I wonder if the species you photographed are the original species that now give so much pleasure to so many gardeners around the world

@Richard_Irwin: Thanks.Dear Richard,this flower is a scarce species,and this is the original one!I`m sure of it!I`m never going to cheat on my friends & visitors.I`m not a botanist,but as far as I know(like many Iranians)"Daamaash" has a protected area (from over 30 years ago -when a foreign botanist named "Ledebourii" discoverd it- until now) That contains some of these rare flowers.That region is well known because of that.These days the whole area is fenced & you`r not allowed to visit it easily.Just at a specific time.And I`m sure Lillium Ledebouri is not found now anywhere else in the world!
You can compare my shot with this one to get sure that it`s original.
BTW,Your lovely yellow lily was really wonderful!But it`s not Lillium Ledebourii!;)
Great colors and details. This is brilliant shahab!
