Rich Colors Amid the Dull of Winter: Earnest Barr’s February Cherry Blossoms

We still have freezing temperatures here in Kyoto, but down on Amami island in the far south of Japan, they've got cherry blossoms. Earnest Barr has some wonderful cherry-blossom shots on his blog lately, with blossoms with a glow, another with bird n' blossoms, and possibly my favorite, “Honcha Pass” on this post.

Highly recommended.

One comment so far...

I’m glad you liked the photos. We had some pretty craptastic weather during the sakura season and I missed the first time it was nice out due to a cold that I’ve still not quite recovered from. When the weather broke again, I took the chance, even though I was still sick, and got those shots. I was pretty happy with them.

Now it’s sumomo season (plum blossoms), and I went out today to photograph some of those. I haven’t had a chance to look at them yet so we’ll see.

Again, I’m glad you liked the photos and thanks for mentioning them in your blog.
