Sakura! Branch Brook Park Cherry Blossoms

The cherry blossom trees were in full bloom at Branch Brook Park on Saturday. It was a perfect morning, with a very nice blue sky to contrast the trees. All of the shots were made with my D200, except this one, which I snapped on my way out of the park with the Canon G9. It turned out to be one of my favorites from the morning. The really soft shots (too soft???) were taken with a lens baby. I’m looking forward to making some prints of the better shots, and I am going to give Adorama a try for some larger prints.

    Beautiful pics!

    I know the park well – near Sacred Heart Cathedral. I ran “The Cherry Blossom Run” more than once.
