Oh, our shad tree is in full bloom and the blossoms are just magnificent when they are backlit by the late afternoon/early evening light. Of course the light breeze made shooting challenging, but I was out there day after day trying to get a shot that captured their beauty. This is as close as I’ve been able to come!
Nikon D700 and Nikon 105mm f/2.8 micro lens.
I made some adjustments to increase contrast so the flowers would really pop and I added Gateaux from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures to finish it off.
