Right across the icy street...I took the scooter...which moves pretty well on ice..better than walking at this time. We are still in national news...crazy...

A Wild rose covered in ice both dripping from the sky and melting from snow then re-freezing...but they are a sturdy breed and I will see it again next spring or early on summer in full bloom.

Hi Bob. Good to see you are safe and sound. And able to get out. They say you can not keep a good man down. I do like the rose picture covered in ice. It looks like its been frozen in time. . well done TFs.

Hi Bob,
the coldness can create so wonderful sculptures - like this here, it's beautiful, thanks

Namastay Bob,
It is good to see you in action. A nice capture of this beautiful abstract of dead rose and ice. Very well composed with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Bob,

Glad to know you are well enough to get out on your scooter. Don't know how you can do that - I would be hibernating. And I wouldn't get to see something as spectacular as this frozen wild rose. I have never seen such thick ice except in ice sculptures. This is truly amazing. Hope Jane is feeling better!


Hello Bob,
Yes, the wild rose is probably one of the heartiest flowering plants we have in the Northwest. It is a shame to see all the ice suffocating everything in your area. Just be positive as this Rose is, and the sun will shine again ONE day and then winter will return with all its fury once again as it stalks the souls of those that choose to live on the Spirit's Wintering Grounds.
Excellent detail within the ice formation surrounding this Rose,
Great Work...

hello Bob

happy to see again of your photos,
excellent image of this Wild Rose covered by the ice,
shot with fine POV, excellent focus on it,
excellent sharpness and details, i love the patterns
of the ice on the rose, TFS


Hi Bob, a very atractive composition of these frozen heads of the wild roses. A natural beauty indeed.
TFS and cheers,

Hi Bob.

Been a while since I visited your gallery. I can see some fine new additions to your already excellent collection of images. Your scooter must have helped in getting this winter view with fine sharp details. I like the framing and rather graphical in presentation. Well done and TFS,

Burrrrrr...looks cold up in your neck of the woods Bob,
I can't believe you guys are still in a deep freeze!
Great shot with excellent clarity and exposure. Love the diagonal composition.
I sure hope you folks get a break pretty soon!! Try and stay warm in the mean time. TFS.

Hello Bob,
Very nice to see a post from you again! This is a lovely capture showing very clearly how the icy cold has hit you in Cheney! Excellent sharp details of the icy rose buds and beautiful colours too! A fine composition!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Nice to see you back in action again Bob!
A great macro showing the effects of sun and freezing temps. on the snow that covered this rose-hip, or what's left of it. The lighting, composition and technical aspects are great, though it might have been even better without the slightly OOF ice-free rose-hip in front of it. I am mystified how that one has no ice on it at all: did you clean it up?

Hi Bob, nice see a new photo from you, fantastic frozen composition with wonderful light and splendid sharpness,
I like a lot

Hi Bob.I haven't pics like that and i hope to make one in these days of cold winter..ehehe..the ice is a great spectacle,my best compliments,Luciano

Hello Bob

Great detail in the ice on this rose.
The encased deadhead takes on a different kind of beauty than that of it's former self.
Lovely light and detail.


Hello Bob
it is incredible what the cold season succeeds to give to us.
Great composition, what else?

Dear Bob,
Unique frozen composition of the wild roses. TFS.

Very cool shot!

In some parts of the UK the sea has frozen! :-)

Great stuff and I'm glad to see you're better.


Great image Bob!

Hi Bob

It is good to hear that you are safe. I was sorry to hear that you were not well.

This is just beautiful, it looks like the plant is encased in glass. You caught the crystaline texture of the ice well
