Cherry Blossom - 桜

Nelson, New Zealand

Nikon D200
AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm F2.8
F3.2, 1/250, ISO-100 (+1EV at PP)


  1. I like your treatment of these last three shots in particular Ben. The light is so pleasantly soft and I find the images have a calming effect which is so in keeping with the natural beauty of this type of flower.

  2. Hanami Nelson style!
    If I am right, the first photo in this series 0f 3 is Prunus serrulata, Mt Fuji - I had to leave mine behind in Auckland. Nice to see such beautiful cherry blossom. The first shot appeals to me most for its depth in colour - brings back memories of Japan also. Domo Arigato Ben.
