Last weekend I felt the Jacaranda Blues. Just in front of my doorstep I see Jacaranda's everywhere. So I diceded to go on a little jacaranda tour and see what I could came up with. And this is the result.

Hi Liesbeth, I had never heard of, or seen Jacaranda trees until I was in Guatemala last winter. So interesting to me - purple flowers and hardly any leaves.
The focus here seems like it's a little soft, but still I like the composition with the tree boughs leaning in from the right, and the little bit of fence visible at the bottom.

Hello Liesbeth.

Pretty refreshing to see this lovable photo after all of autumn colors that I am using lately too. :-) Very nice atmosphere and god pov.



Gorgeous colors and superb composition Liesbeth.
I like where you placed the arc of the trees.
Has a painting quality to it.

A very beautiful composition indeed.
I simply loved the purple of the flowers. Lovely shot.

The purplish blue framed by the arching tree trunks is stunning. The eye is lead to the BG very well. Very well look for, seen, captured and then presented. TFS. Karin
