Wild Rose

It's been a long time since I've done any macro shots.  This afternoon I put the macro filter on my 50mm lens and headed out to photograph (unsuccessfully) some of the tall grass varieties going to seed right now.  Frustrated and heading home, I happened to notice this variegated wild rose blooming just off the sidewalk, and set my sights on photographing it instead.   My latest attempt at copying one of my favorite Jim Brandenburg photos.

It is a surrealistic image in a sense. It goes beyond our human perceptions.
