Monochrome Monday: Roses in the Snow


I took this shot in my garden in November of 2001. Very unusual for us to have snow that early so I snapped a bunch of shots. Monochrome Monday is hosted by Aileni at Loose Ends.

Snow on roses ... I think I have seen it all now. The B&W seems to have snap-frozen the fragility of the petala.

Very nice choice. The mono has frozen the image in time.

This is beautiful! Very ambivalent with the full rose covered in snow. Great shot. I played too -

The photo is very beautiful and I am surprised to see Roses in bloom so late. That wouldn't happen at my location, tho we may have snow then. Thank you for your visit to mine.

First time I've ever seen snow on roses. A perfect image frozen in time....

This is a good photo - usually the rose blossom has long gone by the time the snow arrives ..

Carver, this is absolutely beautiful! Poor roses, though. I hope they survived.
