Today I’m taking part in Macro Monday at Lisa’s Chaos. Remember you can click on each image to see it in a larger format.
I spent yesterday morning at San Diego’s Balboa Park with my kids and one of our stops was the rose garden. I actually went there to take photos for another photo challenge (coming up tomorrow) but I ended taking a lot more photos when I saw the beautiful roses in bloom. So many sizes, colors and fragrances, a delight to walk through such garden, even with a slight rain!
Here are a few of my picks. I hope you enjoy this burst of color!
I love this first rose as it displays so many different colors on its petals. When you look at the various roses on the same rose tree, they all have different colors, which makes me think there was some cross-pollination to explain the yellow tint. Multi-color roses are quite something.
I love this purple rose and had to snap a photo of it! If you click on it to view the larger image, you can see some tiny rain droplets on the petals.
I’m very happy with the composition of this next shot. I took several photos of this yellow rose but when I opened this image, I knew it was it. No cropping or editing necessary. I love these lucky shots!
It’s worth clicking on this last photo to see the details of the rose pistils. I got a couple of photos of this rose with a bee inside and I’m saving them for another post.
