Crabapple Tree Blossoms
"Reversing deforestation is complicated; planting a tree is simple." - Martin O'Malley
A throwback to the when spring had sprung. This is a tree in my front yard that blossomed for less than a week. That specific week is always different every year depending on the weather conditions, so when the time comes you must act on it. This year I fortunately had a moment to spare when at peak color.
The puffy white cumulus clouds and blue sky added to the image whereas a dull grey sky would detract. The perspective here is rather unusual; I employed the use of a wide angle lens and pointed it straight up. My aim was to create a simpler detail shot of the tree, showing enough of it to get the idea. The best photos are ones that focus on the subject and remove any distractions. While not my best photo ever, I'd say I achieved that.
