Pink Dogwood Blossoms

Dogwood trees, while blooming, are incredibly beautiful. As with many other flowering trees, getting good dogwood tree photos of them requires some creativity. For this shot, I was standing high on a step ladder looking down so that the flowers would be facing the camera. Using a wide open f/1.4 aperture with a close focus distance produced a nice increasingly blurred background layers even with this moderately wide angle 35mm lens.
