This is Jacaranda blossom's time. Spring in full swing here in Israel. Picture taken from the most enchanting garden in Givatayim, my hometown - to my humble personal view.
Tel-Aviv and the Mediterranean-sea is on the horizon.
There are so many Jacaranda diff. species, according to this Wikipedia page.
A 16:9 aspect ratio, applied some saturation on, and exp. Bias of -1/3 due to strong morning light.
Location of the garden: 32.0697,34.815

This is a very beautiful spring post executed with a spectacular saturation result. The green and blue tones rule here very well. Cool image! Thanks for sharing.

Spectacular spring composition with the touch that gives the jacaranda in bloom, is a very beautiful tree at this time, good POV with part of the town among the trees, this gives a remarkable DOF on the composition.
Very pretty color on a beautiful day.
A perfect brightness and optimum sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Enjoy the weekend.

dei colori bellissimi per festeggiare la primavera.
Sotto un cielo blu cobalto, le piante in fiore esprimono molto bene la stagione.

Hi Ike,i know these trees and the beautiful purple flowers,for me your capture whit the blue of sky in background and so distant,isn't the best way to show us the flowers colors,all seems a bit strange and not real.The quality of details and exposure is very good as usual.Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

a beautiful vivid impression of this special period of the year when the jacarandas blossom and fill the place with colours and scents. The diagonals give your composition great elegance, the colours are rich and contrasting and their layout in the frame is very delightful. I like very much the bright view of the distant city in the background that enhances the sense of depth, the interest and the luminosity of the image. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,

I think that, if every season has its charme, spring has something more, a light, interior sense of hope that things will be better... Of course & unfortunately it is not a RULE, but looking at a blossoming tree, I feel so....
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2013-04-27 23:04
nice spring picture, great colors and contrast.

I remember you posting shots of the blossom before. They are a most unusual colour for early spring blossom and, for that reason, really stand out. Together with the f/g grass and the green of the shrubs, they make a most attractive framework for the white buildings of your hometown.
The pathway makes a good lead into the shot and the whole is well composed with a good dof.
Have a lovely day,

We get a light purple colour tine about the blossoms, this gives a nice effect to the picture.
Light and colours make these picture attractive.
Very well composition, nice presentation too. TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

I like the division of the composition, the sky, the city and the garden. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the garden and of the Jacaranda. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
serp2000 (44203) 2013-04-28 5:21
wonderful summer colors! this point of view little bit reminds me view to Tel Aviv from Jaffa. Simple but pleasant photo, I see you have very nice weather.
This is my last comment from home.
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-04-28 7:43
Wow! Love the colors of those flowers! I don't think we have those trees in the U.S. I like your pov and it has good dof with nice details. Nice to have those buildings in the background. Well done, tfs.
jcpix (13930) 2013-04-28 8:03
This almost doesn't look real Ike, what a fascinating fusion of colors between the purple blossoms and the blue sky! A wonderful moment captured to display this, for lack of a better term, odd display of nature. I say this because the transformation isn't widespread, and has only affected portions of the tree's, creating a unique appearance. I really like the fact that I had to do a "double-take" to realize what's going on here. :) Love the sneak peek of the city and hint of the sea in the background, all contrasting color against the green grass. This is a splendid Spring time view, you're lucky to have it readily available. Thanks for sharing the moment. Have a great week ahead my friend.
All the best,

A lovely spring photograph taken in strong colors and very good quality. Wonderful are the purple trees. In the distance, white, modern city. I love it.
הצהריים טובים. תצלום האביב מקסים שצולם בצבעים חזקים ובאיכות טובה מאוד. נפלא הם עצים סגולים. במרחק העיר הלבנה, המודרנית,. אני אוהב את זה. שלך.
kato (11630) 2013-04-28 11:27
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beautiful Jacaranda blossom with blue flower in full bloom and Tel Aviv of backdrop. You catch this scene from a good garden with the slope. It makes a good harmony by green garden, Jacaranda blossom, city and blue sky.

Hi dear Ike,
beautiful capture of this landscaping and the view in BG with fascinate sky. I like the impressive colors of the sky through the upper part of trees. I really like it. Tfs.
josepmarin (58357) 2013-04-29 10:55
in spite of the delay, I congratulate you for your fifth anniversary on TE.
It's a good photo, where we can enjoy the beauty of the blossoms of the Jacarandas, in the middle of the green park, and with the vision of the city in background.
The image is sharp, luminous and colorful.
A great work.

Hello dear Ike
What a beautiful time of year and these trees are just exquisite. I love the strong purple tones and how they contrast with the blue sky and the greenery. You may remember me posting a photo of the Jacaranda trees last November (which is when they flower here in Australia) so I think you photo provides an interesting link aswell as letting us know that the Jacaranda happily flowers in Israel aswell. I would never have known that!
emilbo (22616) 2013-04-30 17:10
Le printemps et la nature qui renaît, c'est merveilleux. C'est un magnifique panoramique avec une belle verdure rehaussée par des arbres en fleurs. Beau contraste de couleurs avec le superbe ciel.

You show simultaneously the best of two world; the pristine greenery of Givatayim park through wich it would be nice to stroll through while listening with earphones to the classical music of Kol Ha Musica at 91.3 fm while having a look once in a while at the lovely cityscape seen through the magenta trees!
fabbs99 (17167) 2013-05-07 11:59
I love purple color and the trees got just the right colors.Unique experience and shot.The light, the colors, the neatness, the depth are exceptional. TFS.

Although native to South America, these jacaranda trees also grow well in east coast Australia from about Sydney north into Queensland. They flower in October and remind students it's time to study for the looming exams! Good color, sharpness and saturation. I like the wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs.
