First Blossoms 2012

Spring makes a short break this weekend (but that’s ok, nature needs the rain), and our almond tree is fully in bloom. Like almost every year, I simply have to post a picture of an almond blossom, even it’s a very common subject ;).

    It doesn’t matter whether it is common or not. It is beautiful!

  3. Stunning lighting and composition. Nothing like a simple 5-petal flower. Is this a quince blossum?

  4. A great capture of this beautiful blossom. The light and the pink color are a feast for the eyes!

    Hey Jane, it’s an almond tree.

  6. Brilliant shot. I like the framing, the details and the colours

    Isn’t what photography is about? Showing a common subject in an amazing way? The light on this flower perfect. with whole flower in focus and almost a spotlight on it, the image is just stunning.

  8. Lovely shot, Uwe!

  9. This is very pretty. I like the colors you captured in the flower

  10. I don’t think I’ve seen that many pictures of flowers with that warm background color. I like it very much. Even though the vignette is very strong, it is very difficult to notice as it mostly affects an already dark background. That is the way vignettes should be.
