A TOUCH OF COLOR AMONG THE THORNS
I spotted this lone New England Aster growning in among the thorns of a bare hawthorne tree in a field. The gentle breeze and dappled sun made it stand out among the brown tones of the branches and dead leaves.
(This is the best I can get the saturation for upload onto Smug Mug. It shows up either too dark or medium light. However, I also like the soft tones, so it was a toss up as to which one was better. I particularly liked the sunlight on the thorns and flower.)
