More snow and cold weather outside today, so I thought I’d post something warm and cheerful. This rose was one of a dozen given to my wife from my little boy.

Photo details: Nikon D80, Tamron 90mm macro, f/8.0, 1/80 sec. shutter, 400 ISO, in manual mode. I shot this in the studio with a single softbox about one foot away from the rose. I was lazy and shot it hand-held instead of using a tripod.
