Lenten roses are one of the earliest flowers in spring, but often go unnoticed because they hang with their faces to the ground. Their simple beauty shines when you flip them over. When closely studied, they remind me of tiny ballerinas, bending and turning to some unheard music. These images were taken with a soft-focus lens that heightens the effect of the gauzy, glowing world of ballet.
