I had the opportunity, albeit rather too short, to get a few snaps of the local rose gardens. The scouts were holding a jamboree in the area so they were some of the subjects of todays wanderings. As was the rose garden itself.
All images taken with the Fuji HS10 either using macro or straight telephoto when required.
After watching the exuberance of youth it was off to smell the roses, no pun intended :P
As it was extremely hot out in the early afternoon sun (30C) locally, it was time to do a wander under some shade alongside a cooling stream. There was some nice dappled light around this area.
And finally, the way home.
