Blooming Trees

Posted by

The trees are starting to bloom like crazy in my neighborhood. The reason for including this shot is that the next three shots were taken of blossoms in the white tree.

THE GOOD NEIGHBOR who invited me up onto his deck for yesterday's shot was the beneficiary of a 11x17 in. framed photograph.

NIKON D700 1/125 second F/8.0 ISO 400 50 mm (35mm equiv.)

Very beautiful shot! I love the start of spring when most trees are in blossom. I bet 'the good neighbour' was very impressed with the gift. That was very nice of you. You are more than welcome to use my deck when you visit NZ :)

Beautiful proof that in your area spring has sprung, and we can also see that barbeque season is back!

So nice to see spring is somewhere! :-) Beautiful colors, can't wait to see more of the blossoms.

Trees are already blossoming where you live ? Incredible. In Paris, they are still sleeping.
Like a real palette.

Superb composition which necessarily had to photograph an artist!
It is always a wonderful show of spring hatching in the trees. Their colors are unrepeatable in the hands of a skilled painter of oils! A vision of the future awaiting the arrival of his time! A sweet and lovely picture that moves! A big kiss of many colors for you master Jack!

I like this vivid reminder that spring will actually arrive one day! A fine shot of the beautiful blossoms. On this side of the mountains, spring is much later. Have a great weekend.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Lovely trees, Jack. I especially like that pink one. Is it a plum of some sort?

27 Feb 2010 5:40pm

@Steve Rice: Thanks. I think that it is a non-fruit bearing plum.

It's good to see that you're getting some springtime weather ... I think you have OURS! :D
What a lovely gesture to give your neighbor a print of yesterday's beautiful image.
Today you have another beauty!

27 Feb 2010 6:26pm

@Judy: A week ago, we had several unseasonably warm days, and the trees burst into bloom overnight. It was breath taking. Lordy, I love Spring!!

Loner from Wörgl, Austria

Very nice shot ! I hope, it will be the same here in Austria !

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Wow, spring has arrived in your neighborhood. We have 60F and sunny today, but the trees have not budded out yet. However, the sound of chain saws can be heard all around as we are all cutting downed limbs from the snow storm.

27 Feb 2010 8:51pm

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Excellent colors! The trees and foliage overtake the signs of human endeavors. Love the hot spots of green and yellow with the delicate pink.

Gary from Cochise County, United States

Growing up we had a Japanese cherry tree in our front yard and the blooms always fascinated me.
This looks like a wonderful neighborhood to walk around. Nice shot.

27 Feb 2010 10:54pm

@Gary: Lots of up and down, up and down. As you can see, an abundance of big trees, tall evergreens. The architecture is varied and some of it is quite classy.

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

The pink leaps right out. I can't wait for blooms to hit here.
