Damson and Blackthorn

April in England is the time for blossom. Going out photographing in the Lake District yesterday, after checking my stock at Botany Bay, for various reasons I chose the Winster valley. It had the added promise of the blossom being at it’s best during April.

Blackthorn is currently in flower everywhere at the moment, especially in hedgerows next to the roads. For some reason, in the Winster valley, everyone grows damson trees in their gardens and these are also in glorious bloom. Anyway, I hope you like this split-toned monochrome treatment.
