Fleeting Beauty

Some of my favorite things about Spring are, unfortunately, very short-lived. Tulips and flowering trees in bloom. Their colors dazzle for maybe a week or two, and then they are gone again till next year. I wish so much the colors of Spring lasted longer, but maybe it is the scarcity of these vivid blooms that makes them so beautiful, and I wouldn’t otherwise appreciate them so much if they lasted all season.

I attempted to capture the beauty of one of my red bud trees and the tulips in bloom, but I am not very successful in shooting this type of thing. Seems like it would be easy, but I think I need to learn better skill with aperture settings on my camera to get these right. I think they’re too contrasty and just don’t capture the colors and details of the flowers. Oh well, in person, they are still lovely!

Skyler wanted me to take a pic of her too! She matches the Spring colors 🙂
