A flower from my Valentine

A macro image featuring the vibrant and curvaceous petals of a tri-coloured rose dedicated to my late husband who brought me flowers each and every Valentines day for forty-two years. These gorgeous flowers are also referred to as rainbow and kaleidoscope roses. I captured this photograph using a Nikkor 100 mm macro lens and a Nikon D7100 in live view mode at a focal length of 100 mm, aperture of F4, shutter speed of 1/8 of second at an ISO of 100. I also used mirror up mode and a tripod to ensure a sharp image while using a low shutter speed.

Wishing you and yours a Happy Valentine’s Day!
