Sunny Tunxis Courtyard Blossoms

Sunny Flowering Crabapple Blossoms

I’m not sure what kind of tree this is. Google thinks it’s mock orange or cherry, but I’ve never seen cherries on it, and mock orange is usually a shrub, so it may be something else.

In the courtyard of Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT.

So close, and yet so far…

So close, and yet so far...

This photo is graded on a curve.

I rested the edge of the lens barrel on the bark where I could get a contrasted view of the tree and the woods.  The result was a graduated bokeh effect on the curve of the tree and a distance enhancement on the background woods, which can still be identified, especially in the thumbnail.

I think I also somehow managed to get a landscape into a macro photo.

Just inside the woods near Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT.

I did try to brighten up the photo because the day was overcast, but that washed out all the subtle details and made the colors garish, so I left it as it was taken. It looks much better in the natural light, unedited.
