Spring Dream was taken in the spring of 2010 at the Boston Arnold Arboretum. The arboretum was in full spring swing on this windy morning and I was mesmerized by the blossoms blowing off the trees. I tried to capture it over and over again but only got this one shot of the blossoms blown away by the wind.
The aperture was set to f/5.6 resulting in 1/125 seconds exposure time. A polarizing filter saturated the colors of the blue sky and the fresh green of the grass. During post processing I minimally adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation to enhance the clouds and the blossoms and to enhance the overall appeal of this spring image before sharpening the photograph in the last step.

Les lilas et les rosesReplyDelete
O mois des floraisons mois des métamorphoses
Mai qui fut sans nuage et Juin poignardé
Je n'oublierai jamais les lilas ni les roses
Ni ceux que le printemps dans ses plis a gardés
Le Crève-Coeur, 1941
