kaye said...

It looks almost like snow! what a creative shot. I too, would like to see the color version.

Jarart said...

Fantastic! Now that makes three of us that want to see it in color.

cieldequimper said...

I would never have thought of doing a b&w shot of this but it's perfect!

judi said...

Stunning stuff you have done here.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

That looks like SNOW instead of blooms, EG. Beautiful picture.
Hugs,

I have visions of cider dancing through my head.

Aileni said...

Beautiful - almost a scene from Herefordshire though the barn gives the lie to that.

Dina ... UK said...

Nature at it's best, lovely....

(the bee's did a good job on mine it is full of baby apples)

Jacob said...

So beautiful. My immediate thought: I wonder if I'll be eating an apple from one of these trees in the fall?

Graceful, lacy photo!

Shammickite said...

Lovely scene, but I think it would be nicer in colour! And I love the trilliums in the previous post. Where did you go to see such a carpet of flowers?

maryt/theteach said...

Oh this is so lovely, EG! Soon APPLES! :)

Babooshka said...

Simply gorgeous. I always think these lovely barns should be seen in colour, but you proved me so wrong.

Salty said...

When I saw the thumbnail of this shot in my sidebar blogroll I thought it was snow. Very nice b&w! I enjoyed your Camera Critter post also, he is a devilish looking little critter :)

Vita Stunder said...

Have a great week!

This really works for me in black and white. A very familiar scene in my neck of the woods, as well. I know that a barn is red, I pass by not less than 8 on my commute to work each day!

vincibene said...

WOW! A wonderful spring picture!

Bim said...

Just perfect with the barn in the background.

Rose said...

This is wonderful!

jabblog said...

Wonderful! Could be a shot from a Kentish orchard - apart from the barn in the background.

Carver said...

Beautiful shot. The apple blossoms almost look like snow.

George said...

What a wonderful monochrome picture.

slim said...

This is a stunning monochrome. I like that you got a little of the barn to give the apple trees a little contrast in the background.

Anne said...

Oh this always beautiful blog :-))
I can feel that it is doning something with mee..., and i love the feeling of yoour pictures.

Have a nice day, love from Anne

RuneE said...

I have grown accustomed to think of flowers in colour only. I have now changed my mind.

Tricia said...

Beautiful gorgeous scene!

mimi said...

Minie said...

2sweetnsaxy said...

Wow, look at the blossoms on those trees. Very interesting in black and white. I like. :-)

Daryl said...

So pretty .. so perfect!

Snapshutter said...

I can just imagine the sweet smell.

PERBS said...

Me too! I mean -- I want to see the comparisons. This is very interesting shot with the barn and trees. . . I would never have tought to do it as monochrome. . .

Regina said...

Nice monochrome.Good composition.
I think I should participate today.

Clueless in Boston said...

Very pretty shot of the blossoming trees.

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Lovely shot, i like how you have the barn on it as well.

Dagrun said...

Blooming apple trees are amazing, so nice and beautiful.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Shammickite,

These were in Whitchurch=Stouffville...Ballantrae, actually. But there are masses like these in the York Regional Forest, Durham Regional Forest, northern East Gwillimbury...anywhere there are undisturbed deciduous forests.

Denise said...

Your photograph is so beautiful, stunning! Thank you very much for sharing.
