Behind the Photo: River Road Cherry Blossoms

Posted By on Sun, Mar 20, 2016 at 1:59 PM

There’s nothing as dramatic on the Richmond landscape as the trees blossoming in Richmond this week.

On River Road I noticed a huge cherry tree backlit by the sun. Once I stood under the tree, I noticed the sun illuminating a branch of blossoms. I concentrated on this one branch and used a shallow depth of field, which created a palette of pink and blue in the background.

Camera settings: 1/2000 second at F/4, ISO 200, Nikon D750.
