Cherry Blossom and Cathedral Zen
A cold spring day, threatening rain with a white sky, still air and mirrored reflections - how could one not sit and glory in the quiet tranquility of this scene and say a prayer of thanks for the moment of beauty.

Cherry Blossom and Cathedral Medication
White cloud-filled skies gave way to pastel blue in the still air of a crisp spring day at Branch Brook Park Lake at the start of the cherry blossom season. With very little air flow to move the water, beautiful mirrored reflections of the blossoming trees and Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart created a tranquil, meditative scene that truly was cause for a big thanks for the moments of beauty. The mood didn't last long as skies became brighter and a chilly breeze ruffled the water to break up the reflections - creating another 'look' and photo opportunity of the urban landscape.
