Our entire street is planted with cherry trees, and for a few weeks in spring, the effect is stunning.
This is the tree in our front yard.
A closer look.
This may be my favorite picture I've ever taken. It's certainly up there. I love the way the one cluster of blossoms in the foreground is sunlit and in focus, while all the other blossoms are in shadow and blurred. I think the composition is pretty interesting, too. I'm using this as the background picture on my laptop now.
Really! Want proof?
