Spring photography

It's officially spring again. Last year at this time I was in Japan. Yep, I was there during the disaster. It was a horrible and sad thing, the country was in chaos.  But at least happened at a time when the countries tree's were in full bloom.  

I'm lucky I was able to be there to witness at least this one good thing that was happening. It's plum blossom orchard's.  Japan is known for it's cherry blossoms but it also has many plum blossoms. When I was there the cherry blossoms weren't in full bloom yet so I didn't have many photos of them. 

I shot these with my 5Dmkii and my walk around lens the 24-70f2.8L. Really one of the best lens camera combo's out at the time. And I think I got a few amazing photos even though it was raining, and this is another example why I use top of the line weather sealed camera equipment.  I also had an attached polarize which I didn't really need. I just had it already on the lens and didn't bring my case for it by accident.
