Trees in Bloom with Lens Flare

    Newer Older

    The slope of Grandfather Mountain just below the Linn Cove Viaduct, ablaze with blooming maples at this time of the year. The reds are the flowers of red maples, the bright green probably sugar maples and oaks. The sun back-lighting them makes them almost glow. This slope is just as gorgeous in fall when the maple leaves turn bright colors again.

      The greens do take on a neon glow when the sun hits them. Excellent shot.

      Great shot, I like the way the lens flare is coming down on the blooming trees.

      Very beautiful photo, and interesting to see the flowering maples 'dressed' just like in autumn.

      Very nice shot - great example of how a simple subject can be so appealing. Great example of what the SX40 can do, too :-)
