Adventure17: The yard walk

April 27, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I'm getting ready for my next little road trip (really excited about this one - more about that in the next week or so) and I'm afraid I might miss some of the prime spring glory that will be blooming in my yard.  But there is some to enjoy now so I spent some time yesterday photographing what blossoms we currently have.

We planted two peach trees 2 years ago.  Last year some frost got them at the wrong time, and I was left bloomless for the most part.  This year the blossoms were held back by the cold, but are coming out now (we still have the trees protected from the deer so it's a little hard to get to most of the blossoms for photographs).

The Bradford Pear trees are in full bloom at the moment.  We have one side of the yard lined with them.  It's a pretty site in the spring.  Over the years I have found I am much more inclined to do macro photographs of trees in bloom rather than full tree shots. I just don't seem to have the knack for creatively photographing blooming trees the way my mind sees them (I know that doesn't seem to make sense, but I'll keep trying!).

We just replaced a dogwood tree that just never took hold with a yellow magnolia.  I'm surprised with the amount of blossoms we are getting on that one for a newly planted tree.

My weeping cherry didn't do very well with blossoms this year.

And along the side of the yard, i found these little purple beauties hiding in the grass.

All photographs were taken with a Canon 5Dm2 and 6D with lenses Canon EF 24-70mm 2.8L USM and a Sigma 105mm 2.8 DG Macro HSM.
