Saturday PhotoHunt - Pointed


Time for the Saturday PhotoHunt again, and this week the subject is
pointed.

I took this photo of a rose branch in my front garden on Thursday evening, just before 9 o'clock, with the late sun illuminating the pointed thorns. It was a beautiful evening.

Happy Hunting.

A wonderful photo and now I know why (((it hurts))) so much when one penetrates a gardeners finger!!

I still feel the sting when I was pricked with rose thorns. Nice take on the theme.

Pointy rose thorns. Ouch! When my wife and I moved into our first home 5 years ago there was a puny rose plant next to the garage. I've not done anything special to it except to water it whenever it doesn't rain for an extended period but it's grown into a fairly large rose plant producing large red roses from time to time.

I've got my PhotoHunt entry up at http://www.anniemayhem.com/cgi-bin/wordpress/ in case you're interested. If you do visit, please leave a comment and feel free to explore the rest of my little blog.

Ohh, that stings! Bad thorns but you did a good shot of them.

That's a great shot! Happy Photohunt Saturday.

Woah... just came from a blog with an unusual view of rose plants to another one with a very unusual view of... a rose plant! ;D

June said...

Gorgeous...lighting and clarity = A+

A. said...

Ouch! Yes, very pointed :)

CherryPie said...

It's lovely :-)

Blue said...

I couldn't resist; had to play this meme too!
But, have probably brocken all the rules already, because one photo wasn't enough for me once started - LOL!

Denise said...

Great idea! Sometimes the very obvious is right there!

Criz Lai said...

I must say that you have the most beautiful rose bushes around. I can hardly get mine to be so fat and straight :)

Isn't it ironic how something so beautiful can have such a bite? If there is a thorn anywhere near me, I'm certain to touch it, lol.

What a wonderful idea. Why didn´t I think of that...? I have more than 500 roses in my garden and I know how pointed they are ;)

Beautifully done!

archiearchive said...

I really dislike growing roses - they are nasty, evil plants with those sharp bits. But sometimes the perfume is delightful :)

gaj38 said...

ouch! that's a great pointy pic!
thanks for visitng mine :-)

diXymiss said...

Most eXcellent! Our roses have been rather neglected of late, poor dears. ThanX for the pointed reminder (sigh) and for stopping by. I appreciated your sensible comment! Who knows what was up with those others? Nonsensical. No matter, I have the power of delete!

Rosebud said...

Ouch! Just when I thought I could start posting pictures. I got this great idea... I think I'll just wait until tomorrow and I'll post my photo BEFORE I visit anyone else's blog!
Great idea. Brilliant minds think alike they say!

Carin said...

Very pointed thorns! This week I nearly cycled into such thorns. Ouch. Good thing I managed to avoid them.

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

I love this photo,..... it's awesome. Great job and have a wonderful weekend.

MyMaracas said...

Great focus in this one! And there are few things pointier than thorns. My dad always hated to weed around rose bushes... as he'd say, they "bite."

Damama T said...

I wish you'd quit taking pictures of perfect, fake bushes and trying to pass them off as ones you grew... ;o) JUST KIDDING!! lol! How come is it that even your throns are perfect?? Nothing I ever grow comes out looking THAT pretty!

Larry said...

ouch - rose thorns hurt -- wonderful shot you've taken. Hope your weekend has gone well.

Kerri said...

Ouch! But perfect for pointed!!

Team Tabby said...

Those are very pointed thorns! Our 'thornless' rose bush has a few thorns too.

starnitesky said...

Lovely light, looks very sharp, just right for pointed.

Sammawow said...

Nice shot and a great take on the pointed theme!

♥tnchick♥ said...

Super photo of the thorns and stem. I love the shadowing!

Tokenhippygirl said...

You and I are in the great minds think alike category this week for the hunt. I am, as seems to be the case the last few weeks, late this week with my post. Yours is lovely by the way. Really great shot.
