Can you stand a few more cherry blossoms? This time, Kwanzan cherry trees. Their pink powder puffs are all over the D.C. area right now. . . .
Sunlight turned the leaves into burnished copper.
I like the way the branch meanders on this one.
Have you heard of pixl-r-omatic? It’s a free photo editing program I just discovered. Had some fun with their retro filter called “Aladin” here:
Great weekend, everyone, and Happy Easter to all who celebrate.
Nothing says spring like cherry blossoms. They look like puffs of cotton candy you could pluck off the branches.
Have a great weekend!
They do, don’t they? Thanks, Jackie.
I like that retro filter shot a lot. Very interesting effect. the blossoms in the front are 3D, gloden and warm and those in the back like paintings.
But they are all lovely. Happy Easter to you as well.
Thanks so much, Caroline. I found the filters on the site to be very interesting. They have a lot of them for a free site.
I saw a tree very similar to this today, I wonder if it’s also a Kwanzan cherry? These are beautiful. I especially love the last one, and thanks for the info about the new site. I’ll have to check it out as my beloved Picnik is going away in a couple of weeks. Happy Easter Carole! 🙂
I like Picnik too! I think they’re going to Google, so may be available on Picasa? That’s also a freebie.
I’ve never heard of or seen this beautiful specimen. Thanks Carole for putting it out here! Do they have a perfume? On my way now to check out pixl-r-omatic. Have a lovely Easter weekend.
I think you may be too far north, Cheryl. I’d never seen these trees until I moved to the D.C. area. You probably have gorgeous lilacs, though! I’ve tried growing them here, but they just don’t like the climate that well.
I love what Aladin does to the picture. It does seem to make it more interesting than the shot before it that was untouched.
