Pink spring blossoms-plum blossom macros

In the last two day it is raining almost all the time. The beautiful spring blossoms are already falling down from the trees because of the rain.
For a few minutes the rain stopped and even the sun came out, just enough time to take some photos.

Visit Macro Flowers Saturday to see beautiful macro flowers and join the fun.

Visit Shadow shot Sunday too at Hey Harriet for interesting shadow shots.

I am in a very "rainy" mood but I've found some beautiful music to make the rain go away.
If you feel alike and like good music and if you are old enough for it, come and join me.
Remember when you were young,
You shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes,
Like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Sit back and let Pink Floyd make magic with real live music. These guys have never heard about playback but they perform with their souls.

We don't usually think small when thinking shadows. Good capture.

These plum blossoms are gorgeous! It's been so long since I've seen a plum tree, I forgot how beautiful the flowers are. :)

excellent shadows! I love shadows on flowers too.

Hey Harriet said...

These are so lovely! The delicate shadows on those sweet flowers are gorgeous!

PS - Re your comment on my blog about a fellow participant suggesting that you were "thinking small" regarding your shadows? I think you may have misunderstood the comment she left for you, as I read it as a positive comment. I believe she was complimenting you on being able to focus and capture the more delicate and subtle shadows that we sometimes miss. That's how I read it anyway. You've shown some great shadows so there's certainly no need for me to delete your link from the meme. All good :) Have a great week!

Ah, two things that I love; cherry blossoms and live concerts - at opposite ends of the spectrum?

Plum blossoms are so pretty! I have never seen them up close, we don't have a lot of plum trees here!

Hot Fudge said...

What magnificent shots - I love them. And I agree with Tracy - I think you misunderstood that comment - it was meant as a compliment. You do such beautiful work.

I'm glad the sun came out for a bit so that you could capture these lovely blossoms.
