Each year, Woolmers Estate in Longford Tasmania holds an event dubbed the Festival of Roses. This year was no exception, and Dan Fellow went along to the National Rose Garden last month, and has since offered to share his images with us. We are so blessed, because the photos are just breathtaking.

Festival of Roses: Pictures Worth a Thousand Words

Photos by Dan Fellow

Some pictures are worth squat. Many of those from my own camera are a prime example of that statement. But pictures by Dan Fellow are indeed worth a thousand words; and that’s lucky, because he lets his photos do all the talking! We’ve gleaned from the Woolmers Estate website that the Festival of Roses is designed to showcase roses “in their first flush of bloom; the sights & smells are intoxicating”.
