46/365 Redbuds in bloom

The redbud trees right now are simply stunning. It's the best part of my drive to work in the morning. When the sun is just rising and the light is just starting to touch on the trees, the redbuds leap out of the scene.

It's another tree, like the magnolias, that amazes me. They're so gorgeous in bloom, and then they gradually lose their vibrancy and blend into the green of summer.

This tree is straight across our pond out our back windows, so I get to see it every morning and evening. It's a photo I want to play with more to really capture the way the light hits it in those early and late hours -- before it fades.

Camera: Canon Rebel DSLR, 1/60s, f/5.6 at ISO 200. Natural light at about 8:00 p.m.
