A spring tree
I was sitting at a stop light and noticed this large pink tree in someones yard. I had my camera in the truck and snapped a photo before moving on. I really like the spring blossoms and all of the colors of the spring season. I think it would be cool if some trees were as colorful all of the time, but then I guess it wouldn’t be as special then. Photography-wise I never seem to tire of trying to capture that perfect spring blossom photo. I don’t think I’ve achieved that yet, or know if I ever will, but it is fun trying every year.
I processed this photo a little on the cool side and punched up the magenta a bit to enhance the blossoms. An added vignette keeps the focus on the big blob of color. Again, it’s just a grab shot – no real photography effort here – but I still like the results.
