We all love blossom, and the time of year with which it is associated. That visceral feeling of renewal is a deeply tangible thing.
It’s difficult to photograph, in my experience. Ideally, you get yourself beneath the tree and point the camera upwards – becoming wrapped in the soft light beneath the floral canopy.
No such luck with this one, taken at Grange-over-Sands, yesterday. The sky was gloomy, but it did highlight the lovely colour mix of the deep green and the delicate, linen-like texture of the blossom.
I’ll try to get a few more shots before its brief season ends. The cold and often dark spring is resisting all attempts at present!
