The Last of the Cherry Blossoms
As you have probably figured out by now if you’re a regular reader of this blog, I really love the Cherry Blossom season. There is something so beautiful and magical about the pink petaled flowers and their fleeting lifespan that is special to watch every year. I had been tracking the progress of the blossom from the first buds appearing on the bare branches, to the final few days as the flowers begin to fall.
I’ve already taken lots of photos, and made a few videos this year already of the cherry blossom season, but I wanted to do one more, and so I decided to film my favourite tree in one of the local parks here in Dublin. It’s nearing the end of the flowering season and the petals are already falling, so I made one last little film of this beautiful sight, as the precious flowers fall like pink snow.
For those interested in the technical details, it was shot on a Panasonic GH2 (hacked) and edited and graded (badly) in Final Cut Pro X using Magic Bullet and Filmconvert.
