I took a walk along the beach tonight. There was quite a wind blowing and not a lot of people about. Just how I like it especially when I am trying to take pictures. Does anybody else feel quite self conscious when taking pictures or is it just me!
I took some pictures of the waves beating against the rocks, I love the sound of the water - something very soothing about it. They are not great pictures but I'll save them for another post.
I also took pictures of some plant life. It's amazing how close in you can get. I love the purple head of a Scottish thistle; although it's not the normal angle you see thistles shown from.
I also found a dandelion - well I think it's a dandelion but I'm no expert. Lol.
I love the way the head is all twisted in this shot. And of course the whispy dandelion head. We called these fairies when we were kids and used to blow and make a wish on them. I wonder how many of those wishes came true!!
My husband has just read my blog and said he doesn't think these are dandelions but can't tell me what they are. He is clever isn't he!!
