Trees are in Full Bloom on Kelly Drive

This is another example in my continuing experimentation with impressionist photography.  I did very little post-production, changing only the white balance and saturation to bring out the blooms on a very overcast day.  The white background is natural, as I was shooting directly into the area where the sun would otherwise be on a clear day.  I still have a long way to go; it's quite a challenging technique and requires a great degree of luck.
