Who doesn't love a pink blossoming tree in Spring? When I was in Ballarat last week, I couldn't help but notice these beautiful trees, in the grounds of the historic St Patrick's Cathedral in the heart of the city. The bluestone cathedral makes for a perfect backdrop to these delightful trees. They would have been stunning a few days after these were taken. When I was there, the blossoms were only just beginning to burst forth. Of course, I just HAD to duck in and grab a few shots.

Two of my very favourite things together in the one place - historic churches and pink flower blossoms. What more could this photographer possibly wish for? I'll hopefully time my visit better next Spring though - I was a tad early this time around. I didn't get to see them in full bloom, and that would make for a particularly stunning sight. That said, I didn't go to Ballarat looking for blossom trees, so it was a rather nice little bonus that I got to shoot them at all, and I'm pretty happy about that.
