Simple Seduction

    Newer Older

    I am such a sucker for roses.

    I took this last year on my birthday (how convenient that roses are my birth flower too), early in the morning before work and before most of the city started to wake up. The dew drops were so amazing, covering all the roses with little diamonds sparkling in the sunrise. The hour I spent in the Rose Gardens went by in a flash. I really should start more days like that.

    Lensbaby 2.0 - f/5.6 ring - 4x macro ring (I think)

      Great use of the lensbaby Ar'a. Very nice rich red and it wouldn't be the same without the frost.

      Nice composition for the rose - would have been even better with the background a lush green.
      The frosting on the rose looks real nice though.

      Roses are amazing! They are my birth flower as well and it would seem as if they lend themselves well to fine photographer such as yourself. Nicely done on this little gem!

      {groan} Another gorgeous lensbaby shot. How I covet that lens. I agree, you should spend more mornings doing that. This shot proves it.

      Beautiful! For a moment, I thought it was frost on those petals.

      Flower season is coming! It's very exciting. Tulips, cherry blossoms, roses. It's going to be great!
