Trees here have been slowly coming into blossom. All week I have been so wishing I could take photographs of the flowers but generally I was scurrying to or from work. Finally I have had time to capture the fleeting blooms! It was a little windy so keeping the flowers in focus was a bit tricky but the blossoms looked like snow falling and were whipped up by the breeze until they circled and danced in the air!
I love the contrast between the pure blossoms and the weather worn and mossy bark. I tried to experiment with focussing on flowers in the foreground and blurring those further away. Some of the shots worked!
Some of the trees have only a few blossoms scattered along their branches but others where absolutely covered! Walking under those was like being under the prettiest umbrella especially when the sun was shining though.
I just want to be out taking photographs every day. Spring is amazing!
