 dogwood blossoms by Dennis Frates


Besides crocus, pro photographer Dennis Frates also has dogwood in his Oregon backyard.  He writes, “I shot this image through the tree to get other blossoms to blur around the edges.  It was tricky to get the right composition, and I spent quite a long time and several exposures to get this one.”  Frates used a Pentax 645 medium format camera.
