A backlit Peace hybrid tea rose in the back garden: when they first show the yellows are much deeper and there's just a hint of pink at the petal tips (see 5 images back), but as they open up, the yellows fade and the pink blush becomes a lot more prominent as seen here. Any b/g showing is a privet hedge in deep shadow.

Grateful thanks to all for the supportive comments left on Seeing You, Seeing Me.

I think the pink and yellow together that you have captured so well is really beautiful. Thanks.

Wonderful light Ronnie.
Super shot.
And your title takes me back to Peace and Love from the 1960s.
Or perhaps the ''jeely peaces'' my Mammy made me in the 1950s !!

Always did love this beautiful rose and the backlighting in this image of it only adds to its beauty. Remember reading the story of this rose and the family who cultivated it. Wonderful!

Excellent use of the long focal length together with f11 to enable crispness in the centre of the flower and subtle edges to the outer petals.
A stunning image, Ronnie!

A lovely image Ronnie, full of soft and delicate colours, beautiful! The back lighting works very well although a little light reflected back into the front of the flower might have lifted the middle of the rose. With a long lens though, that, of course, might have been impossible!
It is a good name for such a lovely rose and I hadn't realised that it changed so subtly.

This is really good Ronnie. The back lighting is stunning providing us the full beauty of this rose. Pin sharp clarity throughout the rose attributed to some great photography skills.
