Sakura Report 2015 - I'm Deeply Moved by the Effect of Extender at Tamagawadai Park, but I Now Want Telephoto Macro Lens...

Tama River from Tamagawadai Park

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/2.8, 1/800 sec, ISO-100)

After running along Tama River, I arrived at Tamagawadai Park.

Sakura Report 2015 - Enjoying Sakura Blossoms Along Tama River While Heading to Sakura Spots of Tokyo

It was sunny yet. The sky was blue and refreshing. I couldn't believe that it would be rainy soon.

 

Spring star at Tamagawadai Park

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/5.6, 1/60 sec, ISO-100)

Before getting to the Sakura spot, these white flowers appealed to me. Flowers of Spring star were trying to bloom now.

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/6.3, 1/60 sec, ISO-200)

I got closer to it. Probably I prefer the Spring star in half bloom than the one in full bloom because the former is like symbolizing the efforts to be successful.

 

Japanese andromeda at Tamagawadai Park

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/13, 1/80 sec, ISO-250)

Japanese andromeda is another flower which appealed to me here. The combination with the pale blue color is quite refreshing.

 

Hanami Place at Tamagawadai Park

Canon EOS 6D, Canon EF50mm F1.4 USM (50mm, f/4, 1/400 sec, ISO-100)

I found some groups of hanami people at the west side. I was surprised to see some stalls even inside the park. Sakura blossoms were in half bloom.

I found another hanami spot in the east side. As the Sakura blossoms were relatively closer, I decided to take macro photos here.

 

Sakura with Blue Sky at Tamagawadai Park

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD, Kenko DIGITAL TELEPLUS PRO300 2X DGX (180mm, f/8, 1/160 sec, ISO-200)

The first one is with the blue sky. Now I'm deeply moved by the effect of the extender, which allows me to get the bigger image of the focal length of 180mm.

 

Sakura with Backlight at Tamagawadai Park

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD, Kenko DIGITAL TELEPLUS PRO300 2X DGX (180mm, f/8, 1/160 sec, ISO-100)

The second one is with the backlight. The backlight gave strong brightness to the white blossoms so the white color stood out in the blue background.

 

Pair of Sakura at Tamagawadai Park

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD, Kenko DIGITAL TELEPLUS PRO300 2X DGX (180mm, f/8, 1/160 sec, ISO-400)

The third one is the pair of Sakura blossoms. I often took photos of a pair of Ume blossoms because they are sparsely positioned on the branches. But Sakura blooms in groups so I think it is rare to find such pairs. I felt I was lucky, but at the same time, I now want a good telephoto lens so that I can capture such photos as this without the extender...

 

Best Shot of Sakura at Tamagawadai Park

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD, Kenko DIGITAL TELEPLUS PRO300 2X DGX (180mm, f/5.6, 1/160 sec, ISO-200)

And the last one is the best shot here! The blossoms were well-positioned and I managed to adopt smaller F-number. The sunlight gave warm colors to the blossoms while the sky kept cold colors. This is so lovely! I'm very happy to be able to expect more and more Sakura blossoms this year!
