Purple Flowers, Blue Sky by hoogathy Purple Flowers, Blue Sky by hoogathy
...and an uninventive title. Once again, a P&S shot from Lake Huron. I'll post some newer stuff soon.

Taking this shot was actually an interesting process. For whatever reason, I laid down on one of the lower ledges at the point to relax, and wound up taking some pictures of the limestone. It was a little awkward, I'll confess, and certainly must've looked bizarre to my friends, but anyway it paid off because of this shot. These little flowers are probably a weed of some kind, but somehow they were growing on the bare rock. In fact, there's actually several other weed-like plants that miracuously grow out there where there's no soil, and I always find them fascinating subjects. It's almost inspiring to see some inferior little plant of a undesirable variety defying the odds and flourishing where there's no soil and only fleeting contact with the powerful waves. (Here's another of my pictures of a similar subject: [link] )

Symbolism aside, I enjoy the colours - brilliant blue and purple, two "cool" colours captured on a really warm mid-July day. I took some other shots of this plant, each quite different because the wind was blowing the flowers around, but liked the positioning of this one best.
