An Unusual Burst of Colour

We don't get cherry blossoms out in Cowtown, but this past week, there has been an unusual burst of colour in my neighbourhood as the trees have seemingly blossomed overnight in an explosion of pinks, purples, and fuchsias (yes, that apparently is the correct way to spell it). I'm no botanist, so don't ask me what these blossoms are, but they are quite pretty in the sunlight of golden hour.

  1. These are absolutely beautiful! The Fuji XT-1 is quite impressive, how sharp those lenses are, too :)

  2. Thanks April! I am quite impressed with the Fujinon lenses so far. Sharp sharp sharp, even wide open.
