I sometimes see them like that  but they sure don't come out like that.
Congratulations!

Sure wish I could shoot them the way you do, Sharon! (Or for that matter, that the bugs would leave mine alone enough so that they would be pretty enough to be worth shooting!)

Update: Congrats on your AC for this enchanting shot, Sharon! (And yes, the bugs really do eat holes in my roses; that's why I haven't put any up this year.)

Thank you Donna and Betsy...most roses I shoot are grown by my best friend Cat. She rasies the most beautiful roses and they smell good too! This is the newest rose bush and the first bloom. The glow is coming from sunlight filtering through the trees right onto the top opening of the rose.
