Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple
I thought that I would try this photo challenge thing, could not figure out how to become part of this until I subscribed to The Daily Post at WordPress.com It just so happened that I took a picture of a thistle when I was trying out my new Canon lens 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM supersonic and image stabilizer. Did not get a lens hood because I thought that I would use my Sigma hood but no such luck.
