Looks like my Mother in Law's finger nails.
You've found a wicked looking image today, Marian.
Very well composed as always.

Works well in both modes, Marian. I like the different shapes of the thorns, quite interesting.

A very well observed, composed, exposed and photographed macro image with great detail throughout. I particularly like the monochrome version.

Lethal looking, Marian! Even more foreboding in the gritty b&w conversion.

Great POV Marian - you've got me guessing what this is defending.
Is it a home - if so - so sad that it is felt to be needed?
the mono is almost abstract but I think I prefer the colour.

Excellent work Marian. V1 for the lovely soft green, but V2 is more graphic. You pay your money and you take your choice. Well don.Si.

These are decorative plants, some people use it to surround their property. I will upload another picture once I decide which one...WinkBlush

Nathan, your chains of adjectives always make me smile. Thank you so much.

I always forget to mention that I sent an application to the University of Leeds, I didn't get it but at least they were very nice and sent me a letter of rejection!Sad We would've been neighbors!Smile
