Trip to the Rose Garden

I’ve noticed over the past week or so that roses are blooming in Atlanta and wanting to find a lot of these beauties in one place I Googled “Rose Garden Atlanta” this morning. One of the top hits was the Fernbank Rose Garden, which features around 1300 roses and is free and open to the public.

I went around 5:00 p.m., which is a little earlier than I would have liked to have gone because the sun was still high in sky making it more difficult to photograph the roses.  Nonetheless, I left having taken around 180 photos.  Below are a few of my favorites.

This photo utilizes the sunlight.  I love the pink tips of the petals: IMG_4173

This one captures the sensual curves and folds of rose petals. Coupled with the soft pink hue this photo reminds me of a vintage silk negligee: IMG_4206

In this photo, I wanted to capture the contrast between the delicate petals and the sharp thorns:IMG_4337
