Blooming Bush and Boulder

Three years ago, I did a little photoshoot posted here of the blooming trees at St James Park with St James church in the background in some of them. I returned in both of the past two years, but my timing was off in one year and the road was under construction in the other year.

Here are two of the photos from 2019.


It's tight shooting, and I wasn't sure what I could do differently this year, but I returned regardless because you never know.

I think I was earlier in the day this year because the light wasn't on the trees so much. My attention, however, was drawn to a smaller bush or tree adjacent to a boulder, which the sun was reaching nicely. These were my three photos.



Before I left, I took another of the old mill (now apartments) across the river. There's almost nothing but green in this one, which almost makes it seem like a completely different location despite it being quite a small park.

These are all lovely. I have read photo articles where they recommend you return to a place in different seasons and different times of the day to improve your shooting skills. (I have been having trouble getting comments to post, so hopefully, this works!)

I love the blooms but the new green of spring in the last photo is my favourite.

I enjoyed the posts in 2019 of church and blossoms. And the boulder and blossoms speaks to the great contrast of their life spans...as well as textures! Very appealing to my philosopher self.

I very much like the rock with the light raking across the surface. Nice.

Lovely blossoms.

I have a weakness for pink trees. I always wanted a pink dogwood but ended up with a white one instead. LOVE that second shot!

Lighting on flowers make all the difference. I'm wondering what kind of blooms these were. Cherry? Plum?
