It’s nearly time for the 2015 Festival of Roses in Portland, OR. In a little bit early celebration I wanted to present these Rose Macro images for your enjoyment. If you’re in Portland, it’s kind of difficult to miss this city’s celebration of this beautiful flower. There’s the big Cityfair celebration on the Waterfront, two major parades, the Starlight Parade kicks off the festival on a Saturday evening the first weekend of the festival. With the Grand Floral Parade wrapping things up on the last weekend of the festival. There are Dragon Boat races on the Willamette River and many other events happening throughout the area. You’re sure to find something to enjoy throughout the whole 3 week festival. But if you can’t make it to the festival I hope you get a chance to enjoy these images. I’ve been loading up on images of this beautiful flower and plan to release an image every day throughout the festival. Seems only fitting. So be sure to come back for more every day beginning next week. Until then, enjoy these rose macro images and be sure to share them with your friends.
