Gr8 pic..Am not sure about the flowers, but they r beautiful. Also,I feel if you had taken the foto by evening time, there wud hv been more vivied colors in the sky and some clouds may hv added extra effect.

Gr8 foto nevertheless. #480873

Adarsh, thanks for the comment and suggestions. It was a challenging shot to take because of the height of the thistle plants and the lack of height for me! I too wish the sky would have been more interesting, and I actually tweaked the sky to get the color to look better instead of a flat hazy color. But as it turns out, the thistles were mowed down less than a week after, so I was glad I took this shot while it was there!

Thanks again! :) #3016417
