Shidare-zakura (Prunus pendula f. pendula) blossoms in Tenryu-ji (Kyoto)

The countless pink blossoms of the Shidare-zakura were shining brilliantly against the sunlight of that spring afternoon as if to quietly burn themselves out.

Thank you for your comment, which is a great encouragement to me.

In the slanting rays of the evening sun, the countless petals of the Shidare-zakura tree were sparkling gracefully.
