It’s Just an Illusion by Kirsten Bruening

Do you see the blossom as a whole or do you only see a part of it? Do you see the sun or was it photographed in the shadow? Photography is always a little bit of magic and illusion, this photo was taken in the bright sunshine on an early morning and was only cropped in a special way to change the angle of view.
