I found these beautiful blossoms on a neighbor’s tree, the first sign of new life in our town’s trees this year. It was midafternoon, a horrible time to take pictures on a bright sunny day. I had to move around and try several different angles and camera settings before I got a couple that I liked.

Photo taken in Columbia Falls, Montana on May 30, 2011 with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera.

    This is beautiful Kathleen, I just love flowering trees.

  • Thank you, Vivien! I do too. I just wish we had more of them around here. This cherry tree stood out because there isn’t much variety here…a few maples in town and evergreens outside of town.
