4-11-11 Lunchtime

The sun came out to play today so I took a walk at lunchtime and enjoyed the blue sky and spring colors. I wasn't going to post any of the blossom shots I took but the blue sky just drew me in and despite a load of other photos taken today this one speaks to me. The cherry blossoms will soon be gone therefore I will photograph them while I can. Wind made shooting difficult so I was happy to get something in focus.

The rain has returned this evening making me very grateful that I took the time for a walk under the blue skies earlier.

edit: crop and lomo-ish
Really pretty!

I know how hard it can be to photograph flowers in the wind - wonderful focus, particularly in light of that! Love the blossoms!

Such beautiful bright flowers and well captured by the sounds of it. I am so jealous at the moment. Although I suppose we are getting some lovely autumn colours at the moment.

Lovely shot Shannon! I know what you mean about the wind but you did a great job here. I love the contrast of the petals against the lovely deep blue sky.

These are some of my favorite flowers, you captured them so beautifully! I hate when you have something so easily pushed around in the wind when your trying to shoot it. It looks great though!

Again, the light shining through those petals is gorgeous. Yay for a bit of blue sky :)

@radclyffehall If only, one day of sun, forecasted for 2 more weeks of rain. It's cold out again and my office is about ready to take a road trip to somewhere warm. We are such a bunch of complainers, LOL.
