The riverwalk has a cluster of Redbud trees that bloom every spring. It's a treat to just stare at these beauties. A late start at work prompted for a stroll along the river - of course i carry my camera around all the time. A gentle breeze caught  and the ruffling of the blooms caught my attention and fired up my imagination. 
Walking down the steps for a vantage view framed these beautiful blooms at a slow shutter speed. After multiple attempts - i got my frown out and replaced with a smile.
What i like most in this particular picture is that got the banded bark and branches. THe slow shutter speed but the blur yet preserved identity

Very nice abstract, Ramesh. Love the slow shutter and the blurring you achieved with it. The banding on the branches, you mention, is awesome. I see why this image put a smile on your face. Well done.  :)

Very pretty abstract, Ramesh. Just the right amount of blur so the blossoms blend together to create a feel of motion. Love the colors and soft feel of spring. How lovely that you get to see these beauties every spring, and appreciate them!
