I love these flowers that begin blooming around this time of year and wanted to place them here on this post in a positive manner representing approaching springtime. Even though we have temps in the 30's in the mornings and it heats up in the afternoons. I am not sure if they are cherry blossoms or Japanese Magnolias or what. I am sure my friends David or Jimmy could tell me in a New York minute. Or perhaps you can... I have been noticing the sunlight shining upon them lately. I was not able to capture that effect early this morning on my way to work, but I did get the pinkness of them which was what I wanted to convey most.
This is one of my favorite roads to drive down. It was a bit hazy with slight fog this morning which is sort of evident in this photo. I like the way the light filters through the trees. It looks even better after it has rained. Driving through it sometimes almost feels magical to me. I tried before to capture this with my Minolta camera. I am still not sure this one does it justice. That car saw me taking the above photo of the pink flowers and it stopped otherwise it would have been a perfect shot. I had to drive by the car, but it was still sitting there as I turned to the stoplight in the far right hand corner which you cannot see. I wondered if it belonged to one of the houses and was apart of a neighborhood watch program. There had been a burgalry in another neighborhood a hop, skip and jump near here. All the neighbors had been on tv and luckily the suspects were caught.
Hope you have a beautiful Sky Watch weekend. I am hoping for more beautiful weather like this if we drive out of town to Dothan where I hope to take more photos. If you would like to participate in Sky Watch Friday, please go to:
