Blue Cliff Wildflowers in Costa Brava, Spain

Blue Cliff Wildflowers in Costa Brava, Spain [enlarge]

Totally offtopic and out of place, I know, but these blue wildflowers that I spotted on a cliff in Costa Brava are beautiful and beauty always has accomodation in this photoblog. I don't know the name of the plant so finding out the name is your assignment for tomorrow. I like the contrast of the blue petals against the sepia tones of the clay color background of the soil.
*Due to requests and after the kind cooperation of smb who told me these were thistles I found more information in wikipedia with a very similar image that indicates these can be especifically Echinops commonly known as globe thistles. I also have to thank Kate for the advice.

It looks as those those lovely blue blossoms could be pretty prickly! Can't identify them but I think naming is critical in all kinds of writing!

I seldom get to see a true blue flower but these appear to be naturally blue. I have some blue straw flowers but not this pretty.

Best Wishes for a nice week,

I, too, love the blue and sepia together. This is a beautiful photo! It brought back memories of the shortcut to kindergarten through a field of similar thistles that had golden or straw colored heads. Ouch if one didn't stay on the path!

Carlos, lovely shot. I especially love floral images. I like the sharp contrast of the blue to the muted background.
