Red splash - # 169

I did not want to to let this one pass into oblivion. It was taken in early June when roses are at their best.

The picture has no photographic merit, but it is remarkable because it has perfectly captured the stunning red colour of these roses. The picture has not been re-processed. It comes directly "as is" and "exactly as I saw it" straight off the camera. The view is also enhanced by the special light green of the Golden Acacia tree further along the road.


  1. It is a very nice photograph and red and green are color compliments and your photo brings this out very well. Nice shot.


  2. This must be incredible to see in the flesh, as it were. An amazing red red.

  3. The profusion of shrubbery overflowing onto the pavement is quite amazing
