Sakura Viewing at the Blue Mountains in Sydney, Australia

The City of Blue Mountains is a sister city to one of the Japanese cities. To show good will, the cherry trees are imported to Sydney at that time.

On a foggy afternoon, I walk pass this blossoming tree. The flowers are so big and heavy, they are facing down.

I took this photo looking upward, against the clouding overcast sky. I have adjusted the exposure settings manually, so I can get the right colour. The result is a lovely glow and love the vibrant colour saturation.
