Of Shades of Pink and White Roses

Roses are one of my favourite subjects for photography. The last time I took pictures of Roses was during a visit to the Flower dome at Garden at the bay 2 years ago.   Prior to that  we saw Roses when we visited Everland  back in 2012 as there was a Rose exhibition when we were there in  South Korea.

During our Valentines Weekend trip  I managed to snap many pictures of Roses as there happened to be a Rose exhibition in one of the parks that we visited.

There were roses in many different shades of pink. They also came in assortment of sizes and varieties.

There were easily 50 different types of roses in that small enclosure and it set me off on a frenzy taking photos almost every  2 meters or so when I spotted a bloom of different color or texture.

This cluster of roses had a really lovely hue of baby pink.  It certainly would make a great center piece in a crystal vase.

I tried getting different shots of the same flower by adjusting the focal length and my position while capturing the bloom.  As you can see it does look very different from the two shots captured above.

I love this shade of pink/purple. It’s really pleasant to the eyes and I wouldn’t mind having a whole vase of this color rose to adorn my dining table at home.

The roses in the garden were regularly sprayed with water so that they were kept in their pristine condition.

This was not your traditional shaped rose. I don’t know what the specific name is as the roses in the garden didn’t have any labels next to them so it was hard for me to identify them.

This is the traditionally shaped rose which we see sold in the shops.

  1. Very nice photos of flowers! I wish that I have my own garden of flowers one day in the backyard. I used to collect faux flowers for display at home. 🙂

  2. Roses are my favorite flower and you have captured some very beautiful specimens. I think of the group I like the pin/purple one best, with the yellow a close second.

  3. Roses are one of my favorite photographic subjects too. You’ve took some gorgeous shots. My antique roses are just about to bloom, so I’m looking forward to enjoying them for a couple of weeks.

  4. I really like the unusual peach one. I love flowers that aren’t “traditional.” They are all very pretty, but that one’s my favorite. My rose bush hasn’t bloomed yet here in western Washington, so I’m not even sure what it looks like yet.

  5. In the past, I would have gone with white flowers. But now, I like more color, and those pink ones you have up there really look beautiful – all of them! haha. Even on my wedding, I’d always thought about having a bouquet of white roses, but when it came to picking the flowers for my actual one, we went with purple calla lilies. Loved them to bits!

  6. The collection of rose photos are stunning. They radiate a lovely shimmer that makes the pinks look glossy. Your pictures are beautiful..
