Cesar J. La Rosa March 01, 2013

Thank you all very much. This photograph has always been one of my favorites because despite being a thistle, it gave me a feeling of softness and strange beauty the minute I saw it. Its soft hues of blue and green looked like magic when I looked at it through the lens.
It is dedicated, as the caption says, to all those wonderful friends from whom I have learned so much. Thank you, once again.
