A two-color rose from the summer garden at Mill Creek Park, Youngstown, Ohio. Taken with a 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.

    Wow! This is a real beauty! I had these in California once upon a time… I believe it’s called a Peace Rose. Gorgeous capture, Monnie! (By the way I haven’t really left the galaxy; in the process of moving again, so I’ve been a little out of touch!)

  • Glad to hear from you – I was hoping you hadn’t left!! Has to be a cold time to move, though. And thanks!
