Another Trip to the Plum Blossoms at Ushi Tenjin Kitano Shrine
The first time I went to Ushi Tenjin Kitano Shrine to photograph its plum blossoms, I was quite underwhelmed. At that time, the flowers had just started to bloom and the weather wasn’t very good. I really wanted to get better pictures of the flowers, so when I visited the nearby Koishikawa Korakuen a week later, I thought I had better drop in and get a few more pictures. I was glad I went, but once again, not entirely happy. The weather decided not to cooperate.
Once again, it was extremely overcast. That couldn’t be helped, but I felt it was a little unfair as I had gone there twice, without being able to get some blue sky in the pictures.
Still, I think you can easily see in the pictures, the area around the shrine looked completely different. The trees were in very good shape. I was quite happy with that. It was just a pity that the weather was so overcast.
