Rose Garden and Fountain in Portland

Rose gardens are more frequently Brendan’s purview on this blog (check out this post, or this one), but my visit to Portland, Oregon this summer gave me the chance to shoot some rose gardens of my own. The dramatic sky, the far-off pavilion, the spouting fountain, the acres of roses, and the mis-matched ramp and stairs at the edges of the picture: Peninsula Park Rose Garden hits all the right fairy tale notes. I was lucky to be able to capture it at just the right heavy summer moment—though I have to wonder how it would look in the fuzzy first moments of sunrise, too.

  1. I have personal fascination for roses. Coincidentally they have been on my mind today a lot. This post has just been a delight for me 🙂 How I wish I could visit this place someday. Thank you for sharing it with us.
