“Bull Thistle Revisited”

“Bull Thistle Revisited”

“After the wet spring, everything that could turn green had outdone itself in greenness and everything that could even dream of blooming or blossoming was in bloom and blossom. The sunlight was a benediction. The breezes were so caressingly soft and intimate on the skin as to be embarrassing.”
― Dan Simmons

This is an image of the same thistle I shared a few days ago. The previous image showed more of the surrounding foliage and associated thorns. I wanted to isolate this single stem more. So, I clipped it back and changed the angle slightly. Care had to be exercised to get the angle right, since I’m working with sunshine and not adjustable studio lights. I had to move around teh plant to get the angle and light right and after a few test shots this was the result.
