Welcome to the Flower Show!

June 7, 2012

(Please clock on photos for best view!)

In the middle of May I photographed this street in Højbjerg, Århus. The name of the street is P. Mønsteds Allé.

I was overwhelmed by the flowering Japanese Cherry trees – that created a tunnel of flowers from all the trees in the avenue. During an hour I captured many photos from different spots in changing light. The different light gives different colors to the flowers.

Here are 3 different photos from this afternoon.

Now this wonderful flowering has ended – but I am sure I will return to see this flower-show again in the coming years…….

Thanks to my friend and former colleague, Karin, for for making me aware of this beautiful Avenue!

I love these trees in May – and I have been photographing flowering Japanese Cherry trees before 🙂

    I know the street, have a friend and his family who lives there – it’s so beautiful when the trees are flowering – okay the rest of the year it’s a real nice street – but when the japanese cherry trees start their great show, so…. 😉

      Yes, I can almost want to live in this street – in those weeks when the trees are flowering 🙂

    Nyselig gate og flotte bilder! Sikkert deilige dufter og…
    Ønsker deg ei flott helg!

    Joda, også dette barnehjemmet har behov for klær. Men, her har de flotte ting en kan kjøpe som minner fra Tanzania. Og hvis de har “kjopt” ideen min vil du kunne kjøpe billige “erterposer/beanbags” til kameraet ditt!

      Tak for din kommentar, Hans.
      Og for råd om besøg på børnehjem i Tanzania. Vi vil tage tøj og andre nyttige ting, vi (som alle her i vores rige del af verden) har alt for meget af, med derned og give væk.

        Nei, da må vi skrive “nusselig” og det i omtale om noe som er smått, – barn – dyr – blomster osv…

    Når man ser slik så vet man at det er vår! Mye bedre med en slik tunnel enn med dem i stein. Lurer på om jeg ikke en gang har sett akkurat denne en gang på 90-tallet?

      Har du været i Århus / Højbjerg på det tidspunkt?
      Der er i øvrigt flere steder i Danmark, hvor man har lavet sådanne alléer af Japanske kirsebærtræer…

      We have MANY of these trees here – although they are unfortunately not resident in Denmark….

    WOW, that is amazing! These are so beautiful 🙂 Did you get up close to them too? I’d say shooting these up close with a shallow DoF would be so much fun!

      I did not get close to photograph these trees – but have a look at my link in the post: I have one in my garden – and have captured this (several times) earlier – also close-up…

      I did not get very close to the flowers, but passing under them like I did – I did not smell the flowers….
