Thanks Robin and Janet!! My kids and I froze this rose in a cardboard milk container, then tore off the cardboard about 3 weeks ago and took photos. This weekend when we pulled it out of the freezer, just the usual opening and closing of the freezer door over time caused some of the ice to melt, and a few leaves and petals are starting to show through. It's become more of a "science project" for the kids now to see what happens next ... LOL #428345

How fun for you and kids to play with it. Interesting image, Gordon! #428380

Thanks Cathy, and I wish I could credit for the idea, a friend on mine froze a bottle of vodka in ice with roses for a party years back, so that's where the idea came from (just takes me a while to do things, LOL). #428421

Thanks Colleen!! I'm surprised my kids haven't come up with the idea of just popping it up on a deck rail some sunny day to shoot the melting process, LOL... #429991

I myself am doing some experiments shoting flowers and fruits inside iceblocks with a various kinds of directional lighting and itīs always very intersting and cool.
I liked too much you shot, specially the white fog over the ice ... very interesting. Perfect light. #457714

I wish I cold take credit for the set up, but the rose was just sitting on a deck railing outside, natural light and effects, with an evergreen tree serving as a backdrop... #457724
