Having just spent some time in Los Angeles with our granddaughter while Mom and Dad were away, I was reminded of just how beautiful rose blooms were right now in that part of the country. Our daughter and her husband have beautiful flower gardens surrounding their house and I have featured some of their flowers on this blog. With that inspiring me, I have attached five macro shots I have taken from two different photo shoots.
This first one is from a public garden in Portland, Oregon. This deep red rose bud was just starting to open up.
This capture was from the Territorial Rose Garden in Prescott, Arizona (as are the rest of the attached shots). The bud was unfolding into a fuller bloom.
Getting a tighter framing on this rose blooms pulls the detail of the rose petals into full view, even slight discoloration on a couple of the center petals.
It truly looks like velvet with this deep red bloom.
And finally this purple bloom as a macro brings out the laciness of the petal edges.
