I photographed these beautiful peach blossoms (from a Bonfire peach tree) at the Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Boylston, MA on a beautiful May evening. The garden and these blossoms really captured the feeling of peacefulness and I hope it comes through in this image.

Basic processing in in LR5 plus Kim Klassen’s “like a dream” preset. Then processed in PS CC using several Nik Color Efex 4 filters and adjustment layers. Finished with Kim Klassen’s kk_cora (soft light, 75%) and touchofwarm overlay (soft light, 100%).

    More than the spring blossoms themselves, you’ve portrayed their evanescence so well. Beauty as fleeting as spring itself. :)

  • Thank you so much for your delightful comments and the fave, Celeste!
