Sprig of Prunus Blossom captured with strong back lighting, the b/g a silver birch 70 yards away and arranged so that an OOF main branch softly echoes the prunus twig.

My grateful thanks to all who commented so positively on Raindrops Keep Falling........

Ronnie.

lovely, enchanting backlight enchants the blossoms. the grey backdrop makes the blossoms shine even more.
Glad to see you found a bit of sunshine, all our blossoms have been rained off - wonder whether we'll have 3 or 5 apples this year.

This looks like the stuff we've got at the bottom of our garden, the next time the sun comes out and there is a blue sky i'll be straight outside to photograph it. No doubt that will be sometime next year given what the weather is like at present!Sad
