Cherry Blossoms in High Park, Toronto

Published April 19th, 2012

there's something about the cherry blossom trees when they're in bloom that is breath taking.



It has been a busy few months, but I had the opportunity to visit them in bloom this year, on a beautiful spring day.



a peaceful and rewarding break from the day-to-day to capture the beauty and serenity these trees create this time of year in the park.
