One of the most delightful spring sights in the Long Beach area is the profusion of flowering peach trees on the campus of California State University. Here’s a close view of the soft pink blossoms on a single branch with more flowers forming clouds of pink bokeh in the background. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 202mm [404mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent], f/5.0, 1/500 sec., ISO 100, handheld, early afternoon sun) Textures (Pretty in Pastel and Artiste/Impasto Overlay II) are from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures.
Dedicated to my RB friends who are still seeing snow in April!
