I love these roses. We call them Rosa Rugosa and we find them also along the shore line growing wild as they are tough enough to with stand the weather and winds from the Atlantic Ocean. Their fragrance is one of the most memorable ones in the flower world.
I really like how you have the Baltic Sea in the background of this photo. It really shows the environment they are most suited for. I can forgive the flash, but wish the rose had a little more focus as you have mentioned. But the rose hips are show here very nicely with some still green and others that have ripened to their lovely shade of orange. I enjoyed your note very much.
This where common names fall down, it maybe called a wild rose, but it is a plant much used by the municipal planters for round carparks and where they do not want the vandels, but its home is in the far east in eastern Russia, china and japan, so fall into what I think of as a cultivated plant.
The image is an intresting one the view over the baltic framed by the roses is good.
Definitely a very common sight along the beaches of Denmark ;-) It may have come originally as an import, but the present day bushes must be the ggggg grandchildren of these original bushes and have grown wild ever since ;-) The photo is nicely framed, but the sea is a fraction tilted to the left, so a teeny-weeny rotation clockwise wouldn't come amiss.

Nice capture Per. The frame is unique and well taken. Pity the flowers focus is a bit soft, but the sea in the BG makes it a nice catch. Did you do any processing before posting?

We call this rose Vresros in Sweden. It is common in southern Sweden, too. Very beautiful picture with the hips and the rose in the foreground and the sea in the background.
