In Full Bloom: Cherry Blossoms

2013-03-21 3

Every year, we await fervently for signs of Spring beginning — that’s when you go looking for cherry blossoms in full bloom!

Last year, my friends and I visited Taichung to see the cherry blossoms and had a great time, despite the long walk and light rain. This year, though, we decided to stay in Taipei and headed to Wulai (烏來) to capture spring colors with our cameras.

We wouldn’t have picked a better day, it was gloriously warm and the sky was a perfect shade of blue. Cherry blossoms, no matter if red, pink, or white, are always the most beautiful against the blue skies.

We were sorry to leave the beautiful cherry blossoms behind in Wulai but were also super excited to find a couple of sakura trees in the alleys of Gonguan (公館), just ten minutes from where we live. I’m so glad I had my camera with me that day to complete my cherry blossom hunt this year.

Do you have cherry blossoms around where you live? Please do share some pictures!

    I have a beautiful Cherry blossom in the park in front of my window (close to Shida road) I just came back from a photo shoot, can't wait to see the results. It's actually the first time that I get to take pictures of Cherry as we don't have them where I'm from (France).
