This rose, Breath of Life, is so gorgeous that I don’t think it’s possible for me, or anyone for that matter to take a bad photo of it:
I’ve been growing this rose at the entrance to my backyard for the last 5 years and as I’ve said I don’t think a single one of my photos of this rose has ever not turned out well.
I suppose it’s a combination of the color and perhaps even where the rose is in my garden – lighting wise as we know those are often factors that make or break a photograph. I mean, I’ve got some lovely red flowers that up until I got my SLR camera I had to struggle to take a decent photo of just because the color red can be so difficult to photograph.
The rose looks more pink than coral in this photo but for the most part it’s usually a very light coral. I love the rose! I also love having such a spectacular rose at the start of my garden as it hints at what visitors might encounter.
Do you garden or do you enjoy taking photos? Have you found that some colors are easier to photograph than others?
