Three of our pear trees have been blooming and the other day I thought I’d go out and snap some pictures of it. In the days when I was only a nature photographer, I used to hunt down every single tree or flower I could find with blossoms. My subjects now are mainly people, and while I love portraits, it’s always fun to shoot pure flowers now and again.
Spring is definitely coming to Asheville. The last week of February gave us a summer teaser of days that were 70 and sunny – now we want more! Even 50 seems cold now. However, it appears to be warming up and hopefully this week is the end of cold weather. Our rainy season has already started as well! I’m looking forward to getting out on the sunny days and shooting near beautiful trees like these. Last year at this time, I had the opportunity to shoot Caroline’s portraits in front of some gorgeous white trees. Once the weather warms up a bit, I can’t wait to get out with my camera again with my seniors. Until then, flowering trees will have to suffice.
