Follow the stairs into spring
I love the time of sakura. It indicates the start of spring. These stairs are at the Upper House in Hakone Gardens, a Japanese garden in Saratoga, California.
I processed a balanced and a paintery HDR photo from three RAW exposures, merged them selectively, and carefully adjusted the color balance and pulled the curves.
