Close up "sakura" flowers at the background of festival floats. Today Max. temp. in Tokyo was 19℃.
Spring has been appraoching.
The cooling missions seem to get good result by using several fire engines, the temp. of each surface destroied hangar reported to less than 100℃. But we can't foresee what will happen.

On these way get we positive image out of Japan.
Every day I look to TV about the works to the nuclear installations.
What a calamity in your country and perhaps about other countries when the wind about the sea to in Noth America.
We got the cloud, a lot years ago of Tjernobil about Belgium, with very serious consequences.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant for look at.
Perspective and depth are excellent.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Thanks. I have never seen sakura. I know that it is a kind of cherry. Good vertical composition, nice soft colours. I like blured traditional Japanese architecture on the BG!

Hello Takero - Let's keep thinking positively about Japan and her people. Your spring picture hints at summer being around the corner and as you know seasons come and seasons go but the sun always rises and brings a new day. I love the soft subdued colours in your shot. Take care and best wishes Rosemary

Feast of the rising sun, it's probably the most beautiful of Japanese holidays and most closely associated with nature. Beautiful flowering twigs against the fuzzy background of the temple. Excellent composition, great depth of field.

Another great Spring photo! I like the way you put the focus on the flowers, leaving the building in the blurred background!
A good sign of hope and a new start! You will surely get over all that. Spring will soon come, in all senses, I'm sure!

I have been traveling for a few days and I lost several of your photos, all beautiful! I see that, in the meantime, the cherry trees are blooming, how wonderful! This close-up is splendid with vibrant flowers in the foreground, perfect and razor sharp. I hope that you and your family are well and I keep my fingers crossed for you!
