Red Rose of December...

'Tis a dull dreary rainy day here in Windsor, and John, this one is in response to your request. I finished sending off the parcel and then took time out to slip over to our neighbors, Terri's and Henry's front yard. This rose bush has been blooming forever it seems, and I keep wondering when it will stop and decide that it is winter after all. So, while my wife puts the finishing touches of paint on the baseboards of the kitchen, I put my #2 closeup filter on my 75 ~ 300 mm lens, and took this shot. Yup! Roses are still blooming here in Windsor in the middle of December. We are just a week away from Winter Solstice, and I never dreamed I could ever do this. Strange Wah? While everyone else is photographing Poinsettias , I am still photographing roses.....no ice on the river yet.
