A group of wild thistles growing in a rocky patch of earth in Denmark. Their vivid purple flowers are a real surprise in the grey winter surroundings. The elegant tall stems reaching up to the sky and crown of spiky petals make them a compelling subject.

This image was captured with an analogue camera using traditional film which adds depth and a soft graininess, making it even more unique.
