    Re: post your trees!


    May blossom

    New-to-me Tachihara 5x4, Symmar 150/265 (unconverted at 150), Ilford FP4, yellow filter. Rodinal 1:50, rotated 13 mins

    Blossom on the May tree (the Hawthorn). There is a northern saying - 'Divven't cast a cloot 'til the may is oot', which simply means 'don't remove an item of clothing before the may is out'. Whether this refers to the Hawthorn or the month of May is open to debate. As the blossom is usually out before the end of the month (and is a fairly good predictor of the abcence of any further frosts) I prefer to go with the optimism of the former.

    A gusty, intermittent breeze tested the patience but I wanted to get the blossom before it faded, and for once we some cloud cover (it's been unusually dry, cloudless and blasting sunshine for weeks). I'm loving the petite size of the Tachihara.

    Very nice Peter.
    The May blossom has been particularly lovely this year all over the country.

    The sheltering sheep really make the shot. Very nice picture.

    I sympathise with you regarding the clouds. As a fellow UK resident it seems we very often flip between cloudless blue or slabs or unbroken grey overcast sky whenever I want to make pictures.

    The sauna-like conditions under the dark-cloth didn't help this shot. It was nearly impossible to make fine adjustments due to my glasses steaming up constantly. It doesn't look too bad at a glance, but I think I could have done much better.

    Fishyfish, nice image and tones...you nailed a tough lighting situation.
    Have you considered cropping off the left half of the image and making a vertical image of just the right half?

    Took this up by the Pittock Mansion in Portland, Oregon while visiting my parents. I do miss how big the trees got out there..

    I think it’s a great shot. Nice composition and tonality. The clouds really add to it.
