Pink Rose on Brick Background

This beautiful rose flower was seen in the front garden of a house on the High Street of Sailsbury just around the corner from Salisbury Cathedral. I find the two biggest problems with flower photography are trying to get low enough to view the flower at a good angle and most importantly getting a background that isn’t distracting. Some might say that the brick wall behind this flower is distracting, but using a shallow depth of field I made sure the stonework was as blurred as my lens could make it and I feel that the colours of the bricks complement the lovely soft pinks of this rose flower.
