This shot was taken this morning out on a snow bank in front of my condo. I took my camera and a couple of roses from inside with me trying to shoot what was in my minds eye. I was so afraid as my camera is not waterproof and it was a combo of snow and sleet when I was out there. Please open to the large view. This is a possible for the minimalist contest.

I think this will make a great contender. It is composed well and gives a mood or story without many elements.

You captured what your mind's eye was picturing Kathy. I think it makes a perfect contest entry and most likely a winner.

This is awesome, Kathy. Definitely a contender for the prize in the contest. I can't remember what the prize IS though!

Very nicely done Kathy - like the rose and the texture of the snow as well as the combo of snow and sleet - an excellent contender for the contest!!!!!

Kathy, to me it was hard to believe the lyrics of this song, but your post has proved that I'm wrong, lol.

A splendid and very appropriate entry for the current contest. If you decide that it will be your entry, Good Luck with it my friend.

The rose looks pretty on icy snow Kathy. It looks lonely there and so makes a good entry for the contest.

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB
