Photographer's Note

Sakura and vivid blue sky at Himeji Castle. I left Kyoto in the morning under grey sky, which didn't fill me with hope for my Himeji photos, but apparently the Shinkansen bullet train propelled me into an alternate dimension, because I stepped out of the station under blue sky. The cherry blossom was well in bloom there, so I was able to get some shots of the kind I came to Japan for. Himeji made me very happy!

As with my Cherry Blossom in Hiroshima photo, I played with the focus, and as with that one I decided I preferred the foreground focus.

Polarizer makes a huge difference with this shot.
