The early morning sunlight was perfect on this yellow rose. So I moved in close with a shallow depth of field to fill the frame, yet keep a blurry background of contrasting colors. I especially like the red buds surrounding the rich yellow blossom. I’d like to add this was taken in a spectacular rose garden in a public park down the street from my house. No wonder one of Portland’s monikers is The Rose City.
