I took this photo of the Duke Chapel back in the spring time, when the cherry blossoms were blooming and it was warmer and sunnier. I love this photo for two reasons, 1) it helps me get through the cold winter by reminding me that spring is just around the corner, and 2) it’s a great example that you really can find beautiful scenery anywhere, even just outside your office.

Cherry trees are wonderfull, here in Finland they are the first ones to have flowers, like clouds.
Care to switch offices? If that’s your view, I’m happy to give up mine!
Can almost feel the spring sun radiating from your picture 🙂 Great work!
I’m used to seeing pink cherry blossoms and this is different 🙂 good to know.
