Under the Canopy at Harris Street

  • The Harris Street cemetery cherry blossoms are captured at peak bloom on this late April morning with the sun illuminating the delicate pink flowers

On the morning of April 27th, I arrived at the Harris Street cemetery to find the three cherry blossom trees at peak bloom and perfectly illuminated by the morning light. I spent the hour before work exploring angles and compositions to try to do some justice to the beautiful sight of these delicate pink flowers and the thoughts of spring that they immediately conjure.

As I made my way out and toward the car, I grabbed my iPhone to share a quick view so others might stop and visit. When I did so, I spotted this composition and quickly switched back to the ‘real’ camera to capture it.

With the long branches of the first tree looming overhead, the sky was filled with the pink-purple flowers and perfectly framed the rest of the cemetery and other trees in the distance. Hope you enjoy this view under the canopy at the Harris Street cemetery as much as I did on this morning.
