Beautiful wild rose that grows in Western North America. The rose hips outlast the leaves, well into winter and can be made into tea or jams and jellies.

It’s all about capturing a moment in time. About discovering scenes that, when shared, generate interest and appeal.
I am absorbed in the passion for photography and derive great pleasure in being a part of this superb artistic community.

John Butler is a resident of Northern California. A builder, by trade – but spiritually, a naturalist and photographer.

    This is so perfect! The colors, the composition, the detail. How come my rose hips have no beauty?! lol

  • Thank You for the wonderful comment Martha. I caught these rose hips, late in the afternoon (the golden background).
