Cherry blossom time

Cherry blossom time in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. The long walks, lined with trees, are at their best in early May. This is taken looking towards the Tewit Well, the mineral water source discovered in the 16th Century.


Added to the Cream of the Crop pool as a personal favourite. I like the sense of Spring and the way my eye is taken along the path and through the blossom. Over many years the wind blowing from right to left had given the trees a lean to the left...


Also see this from 2008 and this from 2009; the man in the '09 shot is on the bench seen in the distance, to the left of the path in this shot.
