Royal Poinciana: Sunday Trees




I had to pull off the road to snap this beauty.  I’d passed it at least four times in the past week, thinking every time that I had to photograph it.  This time I did so, shooting against the sun with my iPhone 6 as my beloved Canon is recently deceased and much-mourned.  I actually got 4 or 5 views from different angles that I liked, but I think this is my favorite.  The much larger Royal Poinciana Tree at the front of my house hasn’t come into full bloom so far, perhaps because the electric company had to take a machete to it since it was growing too close to the wires. I think the trees at lower elevations than mine are blooming early this year and very abundantly.  I’ve seen several others I want to capture as well.

For Becca’s Sunday Trees, a bit late this week.
