I was preparing dinner one dark evening with a pan of water boiling on the stove, which was producing a lot of steam and condensation. Glancing up at the window I saw this rose (which should have been disposed of many days back!) covered in drops of condensation, the droplets catching the light from outside. Tood a quick snap, and here it is!

Well observed and translated into a superb image with perfect title. I love the warm rich colours and detail, contrasting with the sparkle of the droplets of condensation. Excellent presentation as always Carol.
