Thistle

August 18, 2015  •  8 Comments

One of the things I really do enjoy about macro photos is that it makes you look a little closer at things you might have normally passed by.   Maybe it is the fact that it makes me slow down a bit too.   It also gave me the opportunity to get some camera time in even though the skies were filled with smoke (okay I probably shouldn't have been out poking around either as was evident by my massive asthma attack later on but still).   There was actually some pretty great light as I took the dog for one last walk and saw these and went back for the camera.   I was pretty happy with the results and am glad I did!

 

We've just returned from a long weekend dock diving and poking around Red Lodge.   I'll be posting more on that over the week!

I'm glad you went back too! I particularly like the first image where the drying ends of the petals look as though they're dancing in the light.
