A Thorny Subject

June 30, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Skim through my portfolio and you'll see lots of leaves and flowers.  It's hard to avoid when you're a nature photographer and other nature subjects - like wildlife or waterfalls or mountain ranges - are hard to come by without doing some traveling. 

So I'm always on the lookout for nature shots with a subject that's not a flower or a leaf, just to mix things up a bit.

I found one this week.

They say every rose has its thorn.  Actually a big-hair band said that in one of those annoying power ballads from the 80's.  I'm sure their fans were very impressed by the not-so-clever (and all too obvious) symbolism of the lyrics.  That plus, you know, all the big hair and stuff.

But I digress. 

Most roses actually have lots of thorns.  I got up close and personal with a rose bush and got a shot of a few of them:

Pretty sharp little suckers.  You don't want to bump in to one.  Much like the lyrics to an 80's power ballad, it can be painful.
