Roses and Rain


I sat this bouquet of roses in a puddle of rain water and took some shots.  


I couldn't decide which of these I like the most so I decided to post them both.

I liked the roses best when they were inside your house last Saturday evening to accompany the wonderful dinner that you prepared.

Nice compositions Sharon, I prefer the second shot.

Magpie said...

Roses...such a favorite.

Mo said...

I prefer the first but would probably have included a little more of the reflection. I especially love that you have chosen to create an image.

Beautiful shot. There is a whole world to photograph in the reflections of rain puddles

Teresa said...

raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens!

I love that blue vase.

I like the roses in 2 but the reflection in 1. ;-)

Either way, you camera captured well the fragile delicacy of those rose petals. Such an array of gorgeous color!

It's a difficult choice but I'll say the first because you can see the rain better.

This is the kind of floral arrangement I occasionally make, Sharon. There is something about mixed roses (never all one color!), and cobalt blue glass somehow touches my soul. You could find a few vases like that one on my shelves.

I heard you got some really good rain this weekend. I think I like the second one best.
