I visited historic Bembridge House (Long Beach, California) on a whim, hoping to capture some of the roses in its garden. Since the gates were locked, I relied on a long lens to get me inside the fence for this capture of a bouquet still on the bush. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 300mm [600mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent], f/5.6, 1/500 sec., ISO 200, handheld, afternoon sun)
