A study on roses

A few days ago, I was working on some pictures with a friend on a very special (and sort of secret) location ;) - As we were walking there, we suddenly found the most beautiful roses. As you probably know, I have a very soft spot for flowers; especially roses, peonies, poppies, etc.
