Crab Apple Blossoms #1

Sorry for my absence. I have been out of town for the last few weeks. Upon my return, I found that Spring had finally sprung in our cooler weather here in Chicagoland.

That looks great against the blue sky, was wondering where you'd been, thought you were ill or something.

@Curly: I went to Sedona, Arizona, which included a day trip to the Grand Canyon. Now I need to find the time to sort through 3,100 photos. However, I will admit that close to 40% of those photos were bracketed ones. :-)
