Apricot tree in our backyard, backlit by the morning sun. This is a new thing for me, as I haven’t played much with backlighting and sun flare. It was a fun experiment that I would definitely try again.


  1. Super composition Caryn. I like how the backlight adds to the tree branches

  2. Great idea to have this already light scene backlit! Works out wonderfully!

  3. it was a great idea to shoot it like this.. beautiful results.. :)

  4. what a marvelous use of the light, normally it would be too much, not in this case

  5. Really like the soft look of this.

  6. Great idea. Wonderful results. Enough details.

  12. It's as though I can feel the suns rays. Beautiful.

  15. apricot trees….such a delicate beauty, those.

    BEAUTIful shot,

    light swimming around each petal

    so thick and sweet.

    I think photographers make the best storytellers;

    maybe because they listen so well

    with their eyes:)

    thanks for the wonderful share,
