This spring I decided to document as many rose varieties I could find in my parent’s rose gardens. I’ve made a few photographs of them in the past, but I figured documenting them by name and variety (accurately) would be a good idea. Most of these roses fall into the categories of Rambler, Climbing, Old Garden, Shrub, Species, and David Austin’s English Roses. This is a sampling of those photographs – you can find all that I’ve made so far in my Roses Gallery.
New Dawn (Climbing Roses)
Rosa glauca – Red Leaved Rose (Species Rose)
Rosa rubiginosa Eglantine (Species Rose) was said to be Shakespeare’s favourite rose

Rosa rugosa “Schneekoppe” or “Snow mountain” (Shrub Roses)
“Rosa mulliganii (Rambler Roses) “

I have put together some of my favourite images made in the last year into this 11"x17" (28cm x 43cm) nature calendar. Included are 12 photographs of landscape and nature scenes from British Columbia and Washington State.
I am a landscape and nature photographer based in Langley, British Columbia, Canada. Most of my subjects are in Southwestern British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest's Washington State. My photography is available for licensing as stock, fine art prints, and giclée canvas wraps.
