If there’s one thing that’s guaranteed to get me up with the dawn when I don’t have to, it’s the chance to photograph roses at the peak of bloom in soft morning light.
Some mornings the petals are covered in dew, giving a classic photo opportunity. This particular morning, as Rosa ‘Scepter’d Isle’ was looking particularly fresh and radiant, I made the most of my good fortune by taking portrait, landscape and square formats.
The portrait format with its focus on one bloom seems to work best, but the other shots each have their own character, so for once, I thought I’d share them all.
Prompted by this week’s photo challenge: morning.
