It's that time of year again...time to make the annual pilgrimage to the Lexington Cemetery to check out the cherry blossoms. The show was a little early this year with the unseasonably warm weather we have had here in Kentucky. I don't expect the blooms will last past the weekend. Even though they had lost much of their vivid pink hue, I loved walking through them with the petals falling in the breeze. I was a week late and about a half hour past the softest light, but managed to get a few decent shots.
These are in another part of the cemetery and are pale in color, but I love the tall canopy.
I have shot these so many times that I give myself a new challenge each year. The last one was trying to get long, dramatic shadows in the early morning light. This year I wanted a starburst shining between the branches. I seem to be terrible at this. The sun was really low in the sky, but I did manage to get a few with the star effect I was going for. Mission accomplished. ;)
