    Oh, this is so lovely, Celeste! Wonderful angle and lighting on this beautiful droplet-covered rose, and the quote is just right for the image!

  • Thank you very much, Anita! When I put an image and a quote together, I do try to make them work together (and this is for a challenge that requires a rose).

    Lovely words to go with this glistening rose, Celeste… The light shows off the rain-drenched petals do beautifully.

  • Thank you, Susan! Nothing becomes a flower better than some raindrops and pretty light, I believe. :)
