    Wow ! What a beautiful lanscape, I love the colors too ! Thanks so much for a so great treasure. Can you tell us where you have taken this picture and what is this plant with this purple color, if you know it ?

  2. Martyn says:

    @Lydle If you download the full sized photo, I think the purple is just a bunch of small bushes with no leaves on them. The aerial perspective gives the twigs a coolish tint.

    Congrats Lee! I think I’m going to enter this challenge. I’ll use New Traditions lead-primed linen (if you haven’t bought any yet, I highly recommend it).

  3. Lee says:

    Thanks for the comments! The purple bushes are scrub oak that has not leafed out yet. In mass, they have a purple tint at this point. Pretty cool!

    Thanks you two for the answer.
