It’s the end of another season for the roses in Mill Creek Park, Youngstown, Ohio (USA), and they’re starting to fade fast. Goodbye, and I look forward to seeing you again this spring! Taken with Canon Digital Rebel XTi and Canon EF100 f/2.8 macro lens.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.

    Beautiful! Something to look forward to after a good rest (the plant’s, that is).

  • Thanks! Truth is, the winter is giving ME a rest as well, although I’d be really happy to be exhausted if I could just see sunshine for a couple of days!
