Blue roses are very rare, in fact maybe only once in a blue moon are they seen! …Well, just once for a challenge anyway, or just for fun. ☺

Photomanipulation: 3 layers of blue added in Paint Shop Pro.
Location: Bardstown, Kentucky (USA).

    Exquisite! It brings to mind Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” – one of my favourite piano works.

  • Thanks! Created for a challenge and not sure what its future is. ☺☺☺

    It is a pity that such a beautiful flower is not seen more often. A really great capture!!!!, Bill

  • Love your wit!! ☺♥ Actually, it’s never seen at all outside of the blue rose challenge in the elegant rose cards group! lol I made 4 or 5 different versions using different roses and this one gave the most surprising result. Thanks for your comment! ♥

    Roses should be seen in blue more often, beautiful work.

  • I wasn’t going to leave it blue (only for a challenge) but people seem to like it, so I guess it stays. Thanks for commenting! ☺♥

    What a stunning shot and such lovely colour! Gorgeous, do you know the name of the rose?

  • Well, since it’s imaginary, I’ve called it Blue Moon Rose which is the name of a RB member and friend. ☺ I’m so happy you liked it! Thanks for commenting! ☺♥
