Now, we are in the midst of March. I'm at Tama River again to see the colors of this month.
It is quite interesting to walk along the river because I can see various flowers, some of which look uncommon. Look at the photo above. I couldn't believe what I saw at the first place because this sphere-shaped wood is, indeed, a Ume tree.
Many of the white blossoms were already withering, but some looked well-arranged like the photo above. This is why Tama River is worth walking along every month.
I love to see the flower of Japanese wild radish in the sunset time because the blossoms added the warm purple color to the riverside. Japanese wild radish will be blooming to enjoy people until June.
Here's the Lepidium virginicum. It is quite difficult to shoot because the blossoms were tiny and white. The point was to find a position where the flower have an empty space backwards. This is very important to give strong presence to the tiny flower by giving bokeh effect to the background.
After enjoying the Lepidium virginicum, I confronted Lamium amplexicaule. I spent about 20 minutes to get the clearest image of this tiny purple flower. It made me feel again that flowers look beautiful in the sunset time.
By the way, I found one black-and-white wild cat on the fresh green grass. It looked quite cautious, eh?
The last photo is the orange sunset from the riverside. This is how I ended the discovery of the colors in March. I hope to see more flowers soon!
