The Gardens in Prescott Park.
Prescott Park, located on the waterfront in beautiful Portsmouth, NH is a place I’ve visited and photographed often, really, really often!
I’ve photographed there at night.
(please excuse the overly intrusive watermark)
I’ve photographed there at sunrise.
(again with the giant watermark?)
I’ve even photographed there in the winter.
But ever since picking up my first camera back in 2008, the one time I’ve never been able to photograph there was during cherry blossom time.
Not once, not in 10+ years!
But how you ask, could someone who photographs a place as often as I photograph these beautiful gardens miss one of the most beautiful time to be in the garden? To tell you the truth, I ask myself the same thing each and every year! Each year I’ll see photos of this spectacular event as they’re posted to social media, and each year I tell myself, “next year.” Then next year comes and the bloom occurs mid week when I have my day job to think about.
Another possible reason I keep missing the cherry blossoms is that their bloom just so happens to be around the same time I’m gearing up for waterfalls. This time of year is peak time for waterfalls here in New Hampshire, and those of you who’ve been following along know I do love my waterfalls. Who knows?
All I know it I keep missing it!
It Only Took 10 Years! (but who’s counting?)
This year, finally, the stars aligned and I was able to make it down to the gardens in time for the cherry blossoms.
