Cherry (Sakura) Blossoms

With Spring around the corner, I had the urge to go find some cherry blossoms or sakura as we Japanese-Canadians call it. And the Lower Mainland is plentiful in cherry trees. Every year they blossom into beautiful pink/white blossoms that make for beautiful photos and drive poor gardeners to distraction (while cutting the lawns - I know, because I used to be one oh so long ago when I used to help my father on weekends with his gardening business). Now I photograph the cherry blossoms instead of swearing at them when they drop their blossoms all over the grass.

There are plenty of places around the Lower Mainland to photograph cherry trees and the best way to locate them is through the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival website where you can locate Neighbourhood Maps in order to find the nearest and most photogenic photographic opportunities. Keep in mind that cherries blossom from late February (think the last week of February if it is unseasonably warm) to early April.

Foggy Morning

It was a foggy morning.

So I decided to take advantage of that and photograph some trees close by for that eerie image.
