Hope he was watching where he was walking, Dean, one of those thorns could do him a lot of damage Grin. A top class capture, as always. Carol

Absolutely love it Dean - superb quality, sharpness, colour and composition - the full monty!

As heroes proudly stand
With a rose that grows
In spite of it all
A simple rose among thorns!
