Cherry blossom at Shinjuku Gyoen park.
The park was constructed on the site of a private mansion that belonged to a feudal lord of the Edo era and later became an Empress' garden. The park is beautiful all season.
But, my and the Japanese's favourite must be Spring; with many Sakura trees which blossom only for a week every year.

... and, in this unique week, you were there.
Beautiful background created by the blossom. The strange forms of the branches of these trees, really seems like the veins of a X-Ray or a cell photo. Very good light under this garden.
Well done Yojiro.

Excellent work, Yojiro!
Very simple in composition and minimalist in this duo-colouring.
This is like a dream, a dream I'd like to dream tonight!
Thank you very much for sharing this one with us,

Nice picture showing that trees are not everywhere the same. I like the contrast of the black color of the trees and the sherry color of the flowers

What a beautiful photograph! I especially love the silhouettes of the branches against the pink. Great photo.

Hi Yojiro, Good composition of these blossom-laden trees. A delight to see in the photo, must be great to be there in the springtime. Good colour and patterns of the trunks and branches is like art. Well done. Murray.
