WalkAbout Wonders - Blooming in March

I wasn't planning on writing anoter WalkAbout post quite so quickly after the last one, but it's been so beautiful out and the dogwood trees are in full bloom, sooooo I couldn't help it.  This was more like the post I had planned to do before Nanook took me in a different direction.

The dogwood blooms are just sooo gorgeous and I have been wanting to get pictures of them for awhile now, but I just kept missing them. Today my family and I were out at the playground and I spotted one of these trees, so I took full advantage of it.  I couldn't decide which one to use so I am posting my fav 4.

Nikon D90
50mm Fixed
Shutter 1/250 sec.
White Balance - upped the pink saturation

All were with the same settings as above.  I was in the groove and going with it :).

I wasn't necessarily going for the soft, "angelic" look, but I LOVED it once I saw what was in my viewfinder.  As far as post editing, honestly it was NOTHING.  A few clarity clicks for online viewing, but that is it!  I was so excited about that!  I didn't even want to mess with them.

God's beauty is so amazing!  Happy St. Patrick's Day, hope you had as good a day as I did.
