PHOTO HUNT # 221: Park/Wither

19 Apr

Mt. Tam in the background, dried teasle on the foreground
At Point Pinole Regional Shoreline (a part of the East Bay Parks System), you can find withered teasles, or are they thistles, you tell me.

two for the road
Withered yet still alluring.

    Nature is beautiful even when it’s not soft and fuzzy.

    Both shots are wonderful. The first one is breathtaking, the second admirably sharp! 🙂

    Agree with YTSL on the first pic. Wonder if the withered teasels can last if they are used in a dry flower arrangement.

    Beautiful pictures. Perfect for the theme.

    I can never tell the difference between teasels or thistles – they look so much the same.

    Have a great weekend.

    They may be thistles, but your photos are beautiful.
