I can’t believe that cherry blossom season has already begun in Vancouver. Here’s a quick look at Whitcomb cherry trees at Nicola Park.
As a blogger for the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, I was often frustrated to find parked cars in front of the cherry trees I wanted to photograph.
When I realized they were actually pretty #CoolCarsUnderCherryBlossoms, I started to look forward to finding cars under cherry trees.
These photos were taken April 2018 in Vancouver (British Columbia) where 40,000 cherry trees bloom every spring.

Sakura Illuminations took place in Stanley Park, at the Japanese Memorial, on the evening of April 1 2016. This activity was presented by the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival and HFour Design and was attended by over 1,000 people. Lanterns were lit in the Shirotae cherry trees and lights were projected onto the tree canopy. It was a beautiful evening.

After my visit to Queen Elizabeth Park, I headed for Manitoba street (corner of 39th) to see two rows of Akebono cherry trees that extend up to 43rd street.
The trees are small, but if you get the right angle, you can still get good photos and excellent close-ups.
When I reached 41st Ave., I turned to face north and was thrilled to see the peak of the North Shore Mountains at the end of the street between rows of cherry blossoms. (There are electric wires in the way, but it’s still a nice photo op)
