What an exquisite capture, Linnea! I don't care what it was taken with, this one really took my breath away! Such an incredible flower, delicate color -- obviously, I could go on and on! Thank you for sharing the beauty! Hope your weekend is going well!

The second rose I've seen in a few moments on the blogs. So very beautiful. You can't improve on a beautiful rose.

That is a really beautiful photo, no matter what you used to capture it. Looks soft, silky, delicate. Would love to feel it on my cheek like a kiss. Very nice.

I screwed up the first link I used on Hey Harriet today. I reposted the correct link. Have a look if you care to.

Peace

It looks as though the rose is being lit with light from below. Stunning!

SHADOW, SHADOW

Shadow, shadow drawing near,
You are all alone, I fear;
Let me be your new-found friend—
I’ll stick with you to the end!

Marvelous.
This would make a fine subject for a watercolor painting.
