Red Rose Images

Red roses - a valentine's gift for the romantically inclined, a symbol of love and passion. Roses that drip blood when their petals drop. Roses that are impossible to ignore, and difficult to photograph. Well, mine are! Here's a collection of my red rose images.

My favourite red rose is possibly Ingrid Bergman. She has the most beautiful shaped blooms which lasts for ever in a vase.

A red rose without fragrance isn't such a good rose, though. And, oddly, some of the richest reds have no smell at all. What a waste!
