Summer in Duluth means a visit to the Duluth Rose Garden. The Rose Garden is built over the top of a freeway providing a popular spot for photographers to gather.

One of my favorite photography locations in the summer is the Duluth Rose Garden. As is usually the case the wind was blowing so all of the shots were hand held. It would be great to be able to photograph the roses with a tripod but so far no such luck.

It was a beautiful morning so I walked down to the Duluth Rose Garden for some photographs. I had been there several days earlier but heavy winds made it difficult to photograph and destroyed many of the rose blooms. It was still a bit windy do I had to hand hold the camera but the fresh blooms provided some nice subjects.

This time of year the roses are in full bloom at the Duluth Rose Garden. It is well worth the walk down to see them. As is normally the case the wind was blowing so I ended up shooting without a tripod.

While I was photographing this flower a couple of bees turned up and started fighting.

This past week I made several visits to the Duluth Rose Garden. The good news was that on one of the mornings there was almost no wind. The bad news was that most of the roses were past their peak. I spent some time taking close-ups of the roses looking for patterns that seemed interesting.Duluth-Rose-Garden-14-8-_0928

There have been a number of frost warnings in the north country and some of the roses have been showing signs of frost so it won’t be long until the roses are done for another year. In the meantime I took the opportunity for a quick visit. It had been a foggy morning so some of the flowers were covered with a heavy dew.

We visited the Duluth Rose Garden a few weeks ago but the roses had not started blooming yet. Last week the roses were in full bloom. It was a windy and sunny day so it was difficult to photograph the flowers but I did manage a few shots.

If you are visiting Duluth, Minnesota most likely you are going to end up in Canal Park on your visit. Just about a 20 minute walk down the Lake Walk you will find the Duluth Rose Garden. It is in the center of Leif Erikson Park. This time of year all of the roses are in full bloom. The view of Duluth waterfront is outstanding from the Lake Walk and from the Duluth Rose Garden.

Rose Garden

The Rose Garden contains over 100 varieties of roses and over 3,000 rose bushes. It is a formal rose garden with thousands of plantings, in addition, to the roses. It is also unique because it is constructed over the I-35 highway. As you stroll through the garden you are walking above a busy highway.
