That is one amazing rose, Lisa. Wow.
i can only hope i look this good upon my death. great photos. have a wonderful night.
it doesn't look good all dried up.
that last shot is my fave. you've inspired me to share my photos of deadstuff, too. Lovely.Happy WW
That's very true, still beautiful !
is this in your garden?
Ya know most of the time you hear people say "oh she looks so good" at funerals and I've always found that odd because being dead how good can one look? But in this case it is really pretty!
What a great series! Just beautiful.Happy WW! Have you ever been on The London Eye? If not, here are some photos of what it is like: http://tinyurl.com/yll4225
Oh yes, I love photographing flowers in all their iterations! Really amazing color and shape.
I agree that it's still attractive.
Dried up but still retaining it's beauty!
yesterday I went to the botanical gardens and almost all of the roses were dying or dead. but I still love them. I used to dry mine up, they look vintage.
Our daughter was active in theatre in high school and always dried the flowers she received for the performances. In fact, they are still hanging in her room at home, even though she is now away at college. I like how you took this subject and caught the beauty those of us DO find in dried flowers. Eternal- everlasting.
Hello! Your have such a beautiful blog--really admire your photography! These photos, the fine details here are wonderful... such loveliness even in decay... :o)
Looks like a golden rose. ;p
I love dried roses. Love this one too!
Lisa the last one got me the detail is awesome! Great series.
Yes, it is! Wonderful work Lisa. But the flower itself really has me puzzled. Usually they fall apart before they dry up like this unless somebody dries them intentionally. Or does the Wisconsin weather freeze dry flowers in the wild?
What I think when I see these: "Returning". As in returning to the ground from whence it came.Fabulous shots!
There is definitely a quiet beauty to that dead flower. I think it has something to do with that burned amber color and its shape.
your rose is lovely even all brown and frozen.
Great shots! I totally agree with the title for your post. I find a lot of dried seed pods in New Mexico in the winter time have the same allure. :)
It is still lovely. Love the last shot, the detail.
Very nice. I love this time of year. Everything has tons of texture!
Beautiful series of shots, I completely agree with the title for this shot.
What gorgeous photos Lisa! Well done!p.s. I got my book the other day - thank you!!
A rose is a rose is a rose....
There's somethng about plants in decline that I love.. sometimes more that the plant in full bloom glory!
