Finding Beauty In the Dark for Sally D’s Smart Device Nature Challenge

“It is said that Thomas Merton was not only a poet and theologian, but also, a photographer. He considered photography a form of contemplative meditation. He welcomed the beauty of broken things.” paraphrased from Sunday talk by Mathew Fox

Night Rose

Night Rose

Wandering with friends in my garden Saturday night by the flashlight on my cell phone, we came upon the rain-soaked rose with a caterpillar drinking her nectar. I framed it with the flashlight turned on camera flash and screen went black but I shot in the dark, Wa la this is what I got. No edit! Must try this again who knows what I will find?
I got the miniature tea rose from the 100th Anniversary Celebration of The Berkeley Rose Garden many years ago. As you can see it goes through many colors from bud to bloom.

Love to hear what you think.
