Pictures for Pam, Day 97: Valentine's Day Rose

Pictures for Pam, Day 97: Valentine's Day Rose
(+3 insets!)

Another cold, wet, and dreary day greeted me today and I simply didn't have the heart to go outside in the mud and icky weather. However, I did have a lot of fun looking through some of my archive photography and found the perfect picture to post for Valentine's Day. It's officially tomorrow for all of us in the United States, but since so many people on ipernity live in Europe, it's a better idea to post this picture today!

Steve and I live near the town of Medford, Oregon, and a large company called Harry & David is located there. They have a huge public garden and specialize in endless species of roses. We've gone there for photo shoots a couple of times and my mind is always spinning by the time we leave because I've photographed so many incredible blossoms. This one in deep, rich red, is the classic Valentine's rose, and so it's my pick of the day. I hope you like it Pam! :D I'm also including some past Valentine cards I've posted. (If you'd like to see more pictures from the Harry & David garden, click on the album to the right and you'll see what I've posted so far.)

I hope that everyone has a wonderful and romantic day!

Pam, I looked on your photo stream for Valentine's Day pictures and found a lovely golden crocus that bloomed that day in 2014. What a wonderful gift! I wonder if it bloomed for you this year or did it get eaten like all of ours did? Anyway, I hope that you can find something pretty to enjoy on your Valentine's Day this year! *BIG HUGGGGGS* from southern Oregon!

Wowsers, I get to be first to comment! A lovely rose image, and beautiful images in the PiPs, Janet. Valentine's Day isn't really something that's followed here, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy images such as these.:-) Meanwhile, Happy Valentines wishes.

Beeautiful! Against the dark background the red seems to glow. The second PiP is great fun, lovely shallow DoF, great reflections and happy colours!
Valentine's Day isn't a German tradition though the young ones now start to take it up after businesses like florists, sweet shops and restaurants have pushed it.

Happy Valentine's Day to you too Janet, although being on my own, I don't celebrate it anymore, but I do enjoy seeing the hard work people do to show their love.

I love your beautiful deep red rose - this is indeed the exact flower that epitomises the feeling of Valentine's Day. As for the PiP's they're great. I wish I knew how to put pictures in another picture like this. I've never seen how to do it.

Good to have the archive filled with some colorful images. They help us on dark winter days to survive. Your eyecatching shot with this beautiful rose is able to cover more than one day. Very nice composition and bokeh. Hope next summer will give us another chance to harvest!

Saw this a few days ago and it is absolutely stunning. You've done a fine job with the color, too, since digital cameras in my experience don't always handle red very well, either blowing it out or not capturing it accurately.
