The jacaranda trees are in glorious bloom where I live (Long Beach, California, USA), and it has become a May ritual for me to spend some quality time photographing the trees and their blooms. I was fortunate to find one tree with a low branch thick with blossoms at eye level so that I could use my macro lens for this intimate floral portrait. For an especially light and airy feeling, I added two subtle layers of one texture (Spring Impasto “Awakening”) from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/8, 1/100 sec., ISO 320, afternoon sun, handheld)
