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.

Thanks for getting up early .. Such lovely images
Great photos. I also have this rose. It is a very David Austin look.
Such beautiful photographs of a beautiful rose!
Beautiful! Sometimes early mornings have their rewards 🙂
These roses are really healthy looking. Their pale rose color is so creamy and feminine, I can almost smell them through your blog 🙂
They’re very evocative, aren’t they?
I had a sad morning but your photos are healing the pain. Beautiful shots.
Thanks for sharing them.
I’m sorry you’ve been feeling sad and grateful that you took the time to leave such a kind comment. It’s a blessing to find nature a source of pleasure and healing.
