A picture of a Blue Moon rose growing in our garden in the North-East of England. Captured with my Canon PowerShot S3 IS camera, Macro mode. The colour of the rose depends on how the light falls on it. It is very difficult to photograph well (a step ladder job!) and does not thrive well in our cool, damp climate, so there were two challenges to overcome, but the exquisite perfume makes it all worthwhile!
