Late Roses

My daughter pointed out to me that the rose bush growing up the front of the house has recently flowered. The roses at the back have bloomed and gone already, so it was something of a surprise. They are quite high up the wall, so photographing them from ground level would have needed step-ladders or some other unsafety equipment. So instead, I have photographed them from a slightly unusual angle; above and slightly to the left from my bedroom window. Putting the brickwork of the wall at the bottom grounds the image, and putting the roses at the "thirds" ties it together. A little bit of tweaking on the saturation and contrast to really capture the difference between the flowers and the brickwork is all I've done here.
