Why do roses have thorns? Well, I was photographing a lovely white rose the other day and decided to stop and wait until the rose opened a bit more and my eye caught the thorn on the stem. So I added the 500D close up lens on top of my 105 mm macro and got in REALLY close. This is just a simple shot - nothing fancy, but I once again became fascinated with nature's details - and also the contrasts we see in nature. There's the rushing river in the quiet forest, a warm sunset on a cold day, and...... a thorn on a lovely soft rose. Those are just a few examples of the many contrasts in nature. Why not comment and mention some YOU have seen lately?
Processed with Topaz Detail to accentuate the details.
