Though I do love to take photos of flowers in general, I have stayed away from photographing roses. I guess it’s because they are too obviously pretty and to me a little boring. But I can honestly say that I love this rose picture. I took it around 3.30pm this afternoon in the Christchurch Botanic Gardens rose garden. Now this is a simply stunning place to be on a beautiful day, and today was certainly one of those. I’m liking the late afternoon light we are now getting that it is Autumn (fall).
