Apple blossom

The perfume of apple blossom fills the air in spring, during their brief appearance on the gnarled branches in the apple orchards, gardens and hedgerows. There is a wonderful rhythm of the petals and buds that I find so engaging. The palette of fresh greens on the young leaves and the pink blush on the white petals compliment each other beautifully.  

I tried to capture  a soft and painterly feel to the images and my 85L portrait lens and extension tubes are my preferred tools for this job to provide a shallow depth of field and a soft background.
