I took this Picture a couple of years ago in Napa, CA. We were celebrating my 50th birthday and stayed in the cutest 19th century house near downtown. The gardens were awesome, and I was wandering around trying to capture the moment.
The sun was sinking, and there was a shadow on this beauty when I lined up the shot, but the wind blew across the garden, and moved the leaves in the tree that allowed a single ray of sunshine to hit the bottom of the rose at just the right moment.
See how the Rose is bright, but the foliage around it is not?
It’s one of those especially bright moments in my life.
