Captured on a drizzly morning in the rose garden, this is “Honey Perfume” (floribunda), an All-America Rose Selections Winner for 2004. I set the background to black and white to further emphasize the beautiful golden color of this lovely rose (done with layers and masking). I created this image for a RedBubble challenge, and I love that the challenges occasionally set me in a different direction from my usual.
