Cherry blossom time!

Resende, a small city located on the bank of the Douro river, is a center of the cherry growing industry.

As we were driving along the curvy roads near Resende, we were passing thousands of white cherry blossom trees.

A story behind: This modern art monument called "The triumph Arch" was created in 2003. I used a 10x photo stop filter to get 72 seconds long expose.  The spotted clouds were moving very fast and there were recorded as long white streaks.
Remember that the longer exposition, the most "creamy" sky you get.
