"Winter Thistle" by Caryn Caldwell


  1. very wintery

    • Exactly what I was going for — something a little cold and bleak with just a hint of coming warmth. Seemed to fit the season.

  2. beautiful details

  3. love the toning and the crisp shot you were able to get! nice work! :)

    • Thanks, Rian! The toning was from Florabella Colorplay — Winter and French Blue. The processing just didn't come together when I was doing the warm edits I usually prefer. Then I decided to use some cooler actions and was much happier.

  4. This is a great shot, Caryn, wonderful macro work – nice light and details. Have a nice (cold?!) first weekend in winter / December.

    • Thanks, Truels! And, yes, so far it's been a nice week, though it was a balmy 57 degrees last time I looked (about 45 minutes ago)! No complaints here. Hope yours is good, too!

  5. You have an amazing eye Caryn. Great image!

    • Thank you! It is so nice of you to say so!! I love your photos, too, and your commentary to go with them.

  6. That is some superb detail! Wow I’m really impressed with this!

    • Thanks so much! That means a lot to me. It was such a windy day — and cloudy, too — that I was concerned about getting too much movement in the photo. Thank goodness the wind held still on occasion!

  7. Stunning
