Pursuing gold tears





I promised to collect gold tears of a rose before dawn broke, but I was too late. Before my eyes opened from sleep the petals of the flower had already become the sun. I will spend the day trailing after its shadow.

On the photograph at the top, you managed well having a neat background and the rose at the front neat too. It's very difficult to do.
I do like all your flowers pictures...
