[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Some beautiful thistles, seen in the Bavarian alps around Rotwand/Spitzingsee. On some others, the pink blossoms were just opening.
Addition: after some research, I'm pretty sure the plant is a Cirsium eriophorum (Wooly thistle). The thistles weren't very tall, perhaps 50cm, and they were found at an altitue around 1500 m.

Welcome to TN,Dear Oliver!

You did great,Oliver

Welcome to TN Oliver. these thistles are very well seen and I like the way the surroundings are visible in the BG.
What lets it down as a TN pictureis the lack of detailed notes about the plant where it is and other intresting details, to say its a beautiful thistle is to miss the fact that with hundreds of different types it would be nice to know what makes this one intresting.
