Ooh, Shiny! WordPress Photo Challenge

The WordPress challenge this week is called Ooh, Shiny! and it asks what distracts you? For me it has to been raindrops on petals.. and how they glisten as the sun’s rays touches them.  Roses are a distraction for me anyway, as they are one of my favourite flowers.  And if I see a rose I just have to photograph it.

For this challenge I am using an image I processed a few days ago.. and is of a rose with raindrops on its petals which was photographed at Chartwell in Kent.. the home of the late Sir Winston Churchill and his wife Clementine.

Another photograph of raindrops on roses which was photographed in the gardens of Pashley Manor. And is a photograph of a pink rose with raindrops on its petals.

I was lucky to capture this beautiful deep red rose which was within the gardens at Sheffield Park Gardens in East Sussex.

Beautiful roses are the sure thing to distract me especially after a rain shower.
