Red Rose Day

Today is Red Rose Day – a day to appreciate and enjoy this colourful flower.

Manipulated Red Rose. (Technical info: focal length 100mm, 1/640 at f/2.8 ISO 200)

It is funny really because I believe that this day was set to show the roses in the height of bloom, and yet the rose bush in my back garden has only just come into flower. It would normally flower quite early in the year, so it is quite late to be finally seeing our roses!

I won’t complain though -it may have only been in flower for a week, bit it is looking lovely!
