Evening light

By Nettles  
Hi everyone,
Sorry I've not been around but I've been really poorly and have been bedridden for almost a week now. The virus that started 11 days ago turned into a very nasty chest infection.
The good thing is I've lost 8 pounds in the process, yippeee!

I took this shot on an evening walk and was struck by the way the low light was catching the hairs on the edge of the plant, almost illuminating them.
MAY BE BEST VIEWED LARGE if you have the time

I will try and catch up over the next few days, but it will be clicks only until I get my strength back a little, sorry.

Many, many thanks for all your kind words and get well soon messages and for stopping by to look.

It's a much-maligned plant, and rightly so, but it does stand up to everything our weather throws at it and offers strong shapes to the wary photographer - such as this beauty.

Sorry to hear you have been unwell - hope soon to hear of your total recuperation!

Oh wow, this is good...!!! Smile
Sorry to hear about the infection, hope you're recovered. Unfortunately my experience is that such weight loss is usually very temporary... Sad
