Simply Thistles

My daily walk path is trimmed with thistles. Whenever I walked by, I thought to come out something different than what I’ve done throughout the years. I tried to use different lens and did it in the different time of the season. In all, I think the ice-laced version is probably my most favorite.

Thistles are created to provide the food for birds. Other than a bit green and lavender colors in spring, it is dry and plain. Who knows they can be charming in the winter.

2020 is not a peaceful year and perhaps 2021, too. I think we just need to cope with the challenges by adjusting our lifestyle. Goodness often comes out of Madness. If not for the ice storm, I would not enjoy photographing the thistles.

Iced Thistle

This picture was taken same time last year on my regular walk path. It’s a┬ápath full of thistles that I found boring most of the time. But, thanks (and no thanks for severe cold weather) to the ice storm… and the natural bokeh in the background.
