After the Rain

By Sue_R  
Found this rose all covered in raindrops this morning, which was no big surprise as it had been raining heavily for much of the night Smile

Thanks to all those of you who've taken the time to vote and comment on my recent uploads. It really is much appreciated Smile

Thanks also to those of you who've asked after my shoulder following my op, which was four weeks ago today (just can't believe it's that long).

My shoulder's improving steadily, but not fast enough for my liking. I'm still very restricted in what I can do with my right arm and it still gets pretty uncomforable despite me being dosed up on painkillers all the time, but I was told I'd be off work for two to three months so I guess I can't really expect it to be better yet Smile

This is a lovely shot, Sue, and considering the amount of overnight rain, it's surprising this bloom and its satellite buds look so pristine. Beautifully captured by you with the rain drops adding that extra wee something to the image.

A lovely colour Rose Sue, and I can almost smell the scent from it, not bad for over 600 miles Smile and the rain drops set this lovely image off a treat.

Lovely detail in the soft colour of the rose Sue, the leaf behind ( top ) is a bit distrating as I'm sure you know. Macro is a whole new world, and one I know very little about.


amazing how the time has gone, two more months of freedom and a lot more things to discover.
