About This Image

A cluster of single flowering, cherry blossoms, in delicate pale pink with yellow tipped stamens.
Not sure of the exact name of this particular species but thought it was extremely pretty.
In Japan there is a legend that each spring a fairy maiden hovers low in the warm sky, wakening the sleeping cherry trees to life with her delicate breath.
Thanks for looking. :)

Jas this is such a wonderful composition of the cherry blossom. The colors are so pleasing. Nice framing with this photograph.

So glad you liked this one Alandra. I think it is one of my favourites too. I think I caught the lighting just right here. :)

this caught my eye at once, Jas. Love the delicate difference in the shades of pink, and the diagonal presentation too. Also the nice legend, that really goes well with this image. Delightful image.

Thank you, Janice and Beverly, for your nice comments. Spring, tree, blossoms always brighten the day, I think. I was lucky to capture these before the rain came and spoiled them. :)

Gorgeous photo Jas! I also really like your framing and your composition of the blooms is great, they are so pretty and definitely fill the frame. Great Job!

Beautifully done! The framing really adds to the composition. Nice work Jas! I like the Japanese legend, a neat culture with tons of cool legends like that. Don
