A few Prunus x blireana flowers flowering.
This was taken in the same pocket of time as these two photos. With this one I thought it was interesting that a bunch of the flowers were clustered in a specific spot as it was much more concentrated than on the rest of the tree.
Obviously being a concentration of flowers leads to this being a concentration of colour of sorts which is nice, but I also like that you can see some slight variation in how far along the blooming process.
This is my submission into the two hundred-and-twenty-first Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. The theme for this one is “Flower Favourites – and Why?“.
To be honest, I’m not entirely certain if I can pick a favourite flower. They’re all pretty wonderful. That said, when this tree is in bloom I have more immediate access than others, so I feel it counts.
The host of the Lens-Artists challenges cycles weekly between the following people:
Week 1 – Tina
Week 2 – Patti
Week 3 – Ann-Christine aka Leya
Week 4 – Amy
Week 5 – John Steiner
Week 6 – Sofia Alves
Week 7 – Anne Sandler
Week 8 – Guest host
This one is hosted by Leya. Amy hosts the next one.
I recommend participating in the challenges. They’re open enough to allow for a fair bit of thinking about approach and closed enough to keep focus on meeting the theme of each one. If you don’t participate, you should still check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.
I hope you enjoy.
Excellent choice. I love the closeup.
Such a cheerful, colorful choice for the week SH, lovely!
