Mine are just opening too, one has small sycamore type seed wings. I love the freshness and sheen of these new still slightly furled leaves and the 'catkin' has great detail. No idea why these are favoured by Japanese lovers, but they have a great love of cherry blossom and have stunning displays across the country.

I use to think it is the good camera that produces best pictures but I was wrong, after looking your this beautiful image I know now it is the person behind the camera who produces great images. I need to learn more about photography. Are you offering free lessons?
