Award Shortlist   


By bfgstew  
Decided to get out with the camera today, it was a bit hard trying to focus but think i managed fairly well considering.
A big patch of nettles has sprung up just near me and the purple flowers caught my eye, just a simple shot of one of them, hand held, just, f4, 1/800 sec, ISO 200.
Many thanks again for your kind words, hope to have some news tomorrow as going to hospital to get thumb checked over???
