How neat to see such a beautiful thistle growing in an area which seems to be dry and void of any greenery. Outstanding clarity and wonderful DOF. Well done!!
really nice one, greetings Ori

Thistles are special flowers, this one is of great beauty with this fine purple coloration. Special but good point of view chosen, a fine, natural and luminous shot.
a beauty of a picture with great details and beautiful colours
