Winter Rose

On our annual post-CES trip to Paso Robles with marypcb, saffronrose, mr_kurt, spikeiowa and voidampersand (shall we just call it WineCon II?), we explored several wineries that were new to us, including the rather delightful Castoro Cellars - where I picked up a "Drinks Well With Others" t-shirt.

While the others were tasting some of the "Dam Fine Wine" I wandered out into the gardens, where I saw a rather photogenic rose bush. Its tiny flowers hadn't been dead-headed, and they'd dried into interesting shapes.

I pulled out the camera, and, well, this was the result:

Winter Rose

I was quite pleased with the way it turned out.

It was also the fastest I ever got a Flickr comment - within a minute of posting the image!
