The rose bushes along the boardwalk by the harbour in Summerside are beautiful in the summer. Then autumn brings the beauty of the rose hips. This time of year, as the bushes emerge from the drifts and snow accumulation of winter, the branches and twigs are a highlight, though a few rose hips remain as well.
In one area, six rose bushes always catch my attention.
I love the detail of the bushes against the vastness of sea ice and sky. A visit at sunset is magical as the darkness descends.
Then, focussing on a few of those bushes, one can see the Indian Head Lighthouse in the distance.
The intricacy of every branch and limb of the rose bushes stands out against the ice and twilight sky.
The branches all but disappear into the setting sun.
