My Cabot roses are fading early this year, or so it seems to me. They only seem to last a day before wilting, but I may be imaging things due to my busy work schedule. I’m only really looking at them every few days. Regardless, I am endeavouring to capture the vibrant pink every chance I get. On this day, the wind was strong and causing them to wave back and forth. this contributed to the greater openness of the blossoms. The sun was hidden behind a thin cloud cover and I always feel this gives me more alive colours. I’m able to capture the colours more evenly; no bright sunspots or reflections; just the colour variations in both petals and leaves. I’ve been playing more and more with angles to get the perfect perspective. Here the blooms appear to be in a parade formation; all lining up to be photographed.
