Thanks for the kind words. It's one of several in a couple of series shot over a few days. Honestly, I was so pressed for time at the end of the contest that I picked one rather randomly and posted it. Perhaps there are others that are a little better in the series. If you want to send me a treemail, I'll email you a higher res version.
Somehow, those blossoms really resonated with that fossil rock and the light stayed right. It's one of my favorite sets of the summer, too.
