Knockout Roses

Early RoseMichele and John have lots of rose bushes at their place. I've snapped several shots of the roses on my visits, but they didn't turn out that well. I did luck out the other day. At the right is a shot of a rose that was just starting to open up. That flower was in direct sunlight. One of the plants is in some partial shade under a birch tree. When I was there the sunlight was being partially filtered by the leaves. The result was some interesting direct sunlight and shadows on the roses that was constantly changing as the wind moved the leaves. I took a bunch of shots and the one below was the best.
