DescriptionThe yellow rose was only discovered by Westerners in the 18th century, when it was found growing naturally in the Middle East. Its popularity quickly spread, and as befits its colour, the yellow rose became associated with joy, warmth and wisdom. Today the yellow rose is given as a sign of friendship. A red rose may symbolise passion and love, but a yellow one symbolises friendship, appreciation and platonic love. Its sunny colour is certain to brighten ones day.This photograph emphasises the rich vibrant colour of the yellow rose, and highlights the delicate looping spiral of the petals. It is a simple macro photo, backlit by a single flash firing through the petals towards the camera. The gorgeous colour and pattern of the flower is a powerful message about the beauty of nature, and its simple, minimalistic composition encourages meditation on nature's magnificence.
