Superb! I noticed this morning on the way to the office that many many of the flowering trees are in bloom along the Broadway Mall and some of the slow pokes are budding just like your tree shot!

Robin said...

There's nothing as glorious as the first glimpse of spring after a long hard winter, is there?

Gorgeous shot.

Spring sky!! Yeay!

Titanium said...

You almost could have shot this in Alaska, except we awoke this morning to all the fresh little willow buds covered in a blanket of snow. Ah, April...

I think I like yours WAY better.

Perfect! And, yes, hooray for spring! I am SO ready! Can't complain today though -- they predicted rain and wind and what do we have?? Gorgeous blue skies, big white puffy clouds and buds and blossoms everywhere! I love it! Have a great weekend!

It's wonderful also because you shot it as monochrome! Nice one!

Very nice. Being monochrome made me really look at the buds almost more than if they were in color.

Carletta said...

The little touches of light are superb - excellent!!

They are just waiting to make a grand entrance!
We have a couple of slow poke trees next door ,they will continue the season for us a little longer!

You're #1 as usual, I see :)

Fantastic shot - this looks like it could happily hang in a museum one day!

A true sign Spring has come..budding trees....good capture.

Katherine said...

Buds ready to bloom! This is a beautiful photo Mojo...you can just imagine the buds opening & the colour coming through. Imagine how that would look coming out of the monochrome ... spectacular!

Karen said...

Very nice monochrome shot... gives a hint of promise :-) Everything is starting to bud and bloom around here, as well..

I like the black and white effect in your photo of buds on branches...very striking!

Halcyon said...

I like the effect of the b&w. Gives the spring sky some depth.
