The village of Loarre in Huesca, Aragon in Spain is a beautiful place to be when the roses are in full bloom along with the many other significant flowers that line the exterior of buildings. This particular red rose picture was taken outside the church of Iglesia de San Esteban when some of the red roses are in full bloom while others are still in bud form.
Red rose bushes decorate this wall every year and seem to be more beautiful each year as the gardeners take extremely good care of them. This alone is a task that can be tricky as roses can be very finicky but once you learn their proper needs, the chore becomes fairly simple.
Every year, these red roses fill the air around the church with a pleasant fragrance and continue to flourish in what roses consider the perfect climate. The only rewards that the plant carer asks for is to watch them bloom and see the hundreds of people that take a picture of these red roses when they pass by.
Red roses are a symbol of love and when visiting the village of Loarre in Aragon, Spain this is typical of the atmosphere that surrounds you. It appears as Valentine's Day every day that the roses are blossoming in Loarre especially the stunning display that grows along the wall of the church of Iglesia de San Esteban.
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II, aperture of f/6.3, exposure time of 1/125 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 35mm.
