Another central composition that works well! You portray this shrivelled Rose hip sharply and with fine colours and the composition of the stems crossing the image is just great. In contrast to the old hip the new growth is beginning to show in the red buds.
Amazing how som old things in nature can be a beautiful sight for sore old eyes!
Thanks for sharing this beauty Bob,

In Sweden Rosehip soup eaten cold as a dessert with whipped cream is an old traditional dish and very healthy apart from the cream!! These days you can buy it dry in packets and it tastes good!
This is a beautiful capture of "old age" showing fine details and lovely colours.
Many thanks and best regards, Ulla

The warm tones are visually appealing and the DOF nicely highlights the main subject. Interesting note.

Bob, you make the nicest and most beautiful pictures of rose hips and pine cones. They are more than alive, the colours remain intact and bright, the dof is fascinating me ;-) Beautiful work with the light, thank you!

Nice sharp image of this rosehip. The central comp. jumped out at me at first. I've been brainwashed! Haha by so many voices here speaking "off center comp." :-) In this image "all raods lead to the rose hip" with the diagonal lines of the branches. I see spring is budding there. We have finally received a bit of thawing just above freezing. tfs Richard

I never know what to expect you to post - you are getting very diverse. I don't think I have seen a rosehip before. Very interesting. I love its placement in the angle of the branches. The lovely red stands out very well.

This is a striking image. I love the sharpness and that wonderful red. The angles and background patterns are nice.
Is that really a rose hip (Rosa canina) Bob? Never see one this big, but whatever it is my friend, it is a perfect take from an aesthetical viewpoint, in spite of the "center figure"s placement right in the middle of the frame, a rare phenomenon in creating a good composition!

Very sharp and well focused, the colours are dramatic and bright..the rest of the composition is as sharp as those thorns.
Good composition and nicely presented. regards h

That it a large rose hip! Well captured by your steady hand, I too like the contrast of the shriveling hip and the young buds showing spring is near. Thanks bob for this excellent posting.

The rosehip on the bent branch is an eye catcher. The details and colors of the rosehip are clear and precise. There is a good contrast between the colors. The subject is well framed. Your note has a lot of information. Have a nice day.
