Spring Apple Blossom Encircled By Pink Buds by 


This beautiful sprig of apple buds and a new blossom was just taken on Saturday, May 2nd. This marks an annual spring celebration in the apple growing states.The beautiful blooms usually appear around the first of May in our area. They are all gone within a week or so.

This photo is for my kind neighbor, who’s tree provided the subject.

This photo was captured with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM prime lens. The shutter speed was 1/750th sec at f/5.6. The camera’s ISO was set to 400. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a remote shutter release.

Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.

    Nice crisp shot of this beautiful blossom and bud. I love apple blossoms! Congrats on your feature.

  • Thank you so much!

    The apple blossoms come and go so quickly. I was lucky to catch this one at just the right time (thanks to my neighbor calling me over and showing me that her tree had just reached full bloom). I am very pleased that you like the shot!

    Best wishes,
