Rose-scented Summer Breeze
Big old-fashioned roses tumbling over a garden wall on my neighbourhood walk route. 20cms square (8 x 8 inches) on smooth Loxley Art panel.
The smell of these gorgeous roses was amazing. I took lots of reference photos but my favourites were those looking straight upwards at the roses and out into the big blue sky. This is the view I challenged myself to capture - the roses bobbing in the bright morning sunshine, the beautiful blue skies and the scent of heavenly perfume.
