In the Pink

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
In the Pink
In the Pink
Being "in the pink" is a condition that's quite appealing right now, when we're literally in the white! As I look out my window, I see a blanket of snow, with more coming down to the tune of another half-dozen inches by the end of the day. In fact, we're getting the best of it; folks around us could see a foot or more. So, I'll take refuge in this colorful rose from the summer gardens at Mill Creek Park! Stay warm and safe, everyone!

This is stunning Monnie! Beautiful detail, color and light and it looks like velvet!
Snow still coming down and the wind is howling! And then we have to look forward to flooding come Monday. What a joy winter is in Ohio, huh?

I just love rose shots and this certainly a beautiful one!! The color, textures and details are outstanding!!

At the risk of making everybody north of us we had less than an inch of snow on the south side of Columbus and it was all gone by noon. Hope you are all safe!!

Thanks, Annette! The metadata isn't on this one so I can't tell you for sure unless I can dig up the original - it's in the archives somewhere. The best I can do for now is say it was taken with my Canon EF 100 f/2.8 macro lens (which I love).
