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.

They look so fresh and beautiful!
The morning light is such a blessing.
Hi Susan, I see you and I love the same thing 🙂 Gorgeous photos.
Definitely worth getting up for.
I always wish gardens would open earlier and stay open later, even just once each year, though I understand the economics.
They look so beautiful, definitely worth getting up early for.
I’d be an early riser if roses flowered all year round!
Oh they are gorgeous! I don’t have any roses yet, they are still growing, so I’m glad you’ve shared yours. Stunning.
My own aren’t half as pretty as these!
