After last weeks mistake, I wasn’t going to miss the Cherry Blossom Festival at Branch Brook Park . There were many more trees in bloom and the sky was a perfect contrasty blue when the clouds cooperated. The close-up images were taken with my ancient Nikon 28-105 lens. It’s suffering from a sticky zoom mechanism, but it still delivers. The dancers are from the 10tecommai group. Enjoy !
There was some really great “golden hour” light streaming into my dining room last weekend. These flowers on the table were glowing, and one flower was lit up much brighter than the others. It turns out that the camera didn’t quite capture what I was seeing. The dimmer portions of the scene turned quite dark… but this flower still stood out from the others.
