Crabapple is one of the most common trees in Midwest. But in the world of long and hash winter, crabapple is like a spice on an otherwise tasteless dish. It had been snowing for a couple of days in Midwest. I finally can’t take it anymore. So I decided to go out to Morton Arboretum to photograph some crabapple trees to brighten up my day. Just when I was photographing this tree, strong wind blew the snow up in the air, helped me to filter out distracting elements at distance.
After hundreds of crabapple pictures on my hard drive, I decided to try a new angle. So I put my tripod on a higher ground over a smaller tree. The flip screen of my Sony A99 comes handy when I compose the picture from underneath. At this angle, the background is finally pure.
