[jules' pics] Mountain Flowers

alpine flowers
A week of bright sunshine made for tricky flower photography, saved by the technical lighting assistant and his magic hat.

Dear James, is "magic hat" a usable Englisch name for this beautiful Aconitum (japonicum?), or are you just inventing a creative pun? Just a curious biologist........ :)

Sadly, the magic hat just refers to the hat as seen here which is one of these and is not only very robust and serviceable as a hat, but also fairly effective as a shade and/or reflector (jules has one too) to help deal with the difficulties of photography in the extremely harsh midday mountain sun.
