Good morning everyone! I joined my photo club at the too-early hour of 7 AM at Meadowlark Gardens. Each year our club arranges to have the park photographer (Bill Folsum - and check out his website! http://www.wfolsom.com/) meet us before it opens to let us in and wander. Typically the timing is good for the cherry blossoms. Each year I miss out (in part because htis would mean I have to get up before 6 AM on a Sunday, and I'm spoiled and lazy) in order to do this. This morning the alarm went off and I briefly thought of stabbing the alarm clock but I heaved myself out of bed anyway. Sigh.
Here is the result. Interestingly enough I have photos taken from one year ago (April 2, 2010) at a more godly hour - see the link far below. Last year at this time the blossoms were a little bit better but not hugely so. Of this set I think my favorite is the one that is second up from the bottom. The Blues...
THE OLD SET FROM 2010 - ONE YEAR AGO ALMOST EXACTLY.
