Picture Spring: A Pastel Pallet

Picture Spring: A Pastel Pallet

We often seek out bright and boastful colors this time of year (we’ve been fighting the doldrums of winter after all) but spring can also bring the soft, muted tones to soothe our senses and calm our souls. Colored Easter eggs and spring dresses are among a number of places we see and can appreciate another kind of color: the pastel pallet.

WeepingCherryBlossoms-1

Weeping Cherry Blossoms (you can see these in bud form on my April 5th post, 90 degree temperatures will do that to you or in this case to this tree) against a pale blue sky. I played with the aperture a lot with this shot taking many pictures until I had exactly what I wanted in focus. Edited with Picnik. Canon EOS 7D, ISO 100, f/7.1, 50.0mm
