Pink And White Pompoms Of Light
Seriously, how can nature continue to take my breath away with one new thing after the other?

This image was shot in Granville Island, Vancouver, BC, British Columbia. I went out with the intention of shooting cherry blossoms and was not disappointed! Vancouver prides itself on the profusion of cherry trees, both ornamental and fruit bearing. After the March rains over 40,000 cherry trees burst into bloom. They only last for a short while so I got out and enjoyed them every day! It is beauty beyond compare.
There are many different types of blooms, all richly perfumed. These pompom style blossoms are unreal. I tried to find out what kind of variety it was but am not sure I found it. I think this one might be a Yoshino Cherry which was cultivated in Japan during the Edo Period and is the most numerous cherry tree in Japan. In any case, the tree was vast and I felt overwhelmed with gratitude to get to see this fleeting treat.
