Good photographers see things that the rest of us miss.

What a pleasure to see this great photo. Love the bark on the cherry tree. Once went to Westonbirt, with hundreds of trees from around the world. Something magical in seeing so many shapes and colours, I also took lots just of the bark, you could say I'm barking mad. Lovely clear shot of nature, against a faded background.

Spring is here when the Cherry Blossom comes out in the Far East they celebrate and have Cherry Blossom festivals.

Shame our cherry blossom dosent stay on the trees so long in the Far East it stays on much longer.

Another of natures wonders, I am always fascinated by the bark of the Silver Birch.

Great photo. Have to agree with Den that good photographers do indeed see things that the rest of us miss.

Is it a Tibetan Cherry Tree?

Maggie K, it looks like a "Japanese Cherry Tree", see STEP 5 in:-
