Round Robin Photo Challenge -- Not of This Season












This time the Round Robin Photo Challenge theme is "Not of This Season." My choices were the above picture of a rose in my rose bed coming into bloom in the summer, a year or two ago, and a picture of the D Sands beach in Lincoln City at the Oregon Coast, also in a summer several years ago. It is nice to have this Challenge in which to remember those summer days and get a reminder that the cold will soon be gone and we will have warm days again (maybe too warm?). ;-) To see other entries in this challenge, go to the link in the first sentence and there you will find links to other bloggers who are participating. If you want to join in, you will find directions there, too!

Both shots are stunning but I LOVE the rose. It looks like if I touch my screen I will be touching it. Nice!

I don't know which photo is lovelier. I can almost smell the rose and hear the waves. What a nice break from winter!

Hi Suzanne :)

That rose is just about perfect! That is my favorite shade of pink. So soft and feminine. :) And the beach, well, I could just step right into that photo! I love the beach, especially on a cool winter night. It brings back all kinds of nice memories. Lovely darlin. Thanks so much for playing.

Hugs, Carly

Both are beautiful. The beach is especially appealing to me - I'd love to be there and for the weather to be warm (naturally).

Oh, I love the beach shot. It's almost ethereal, and definitely iconic. Well done!
