Guateflora: Jacarandas

Jacaranda at Antigua's Main Plaza

Interesting enough, last year when I published the Guateflora series, I overlooked the jacaranda trees, which are omnipresent in and around Antigua Guatemala. Although, I did show you the Jacarandas at Antigua’s Central Park almost two years ago, on February 22nd, 2007.

Well, perhaps it is the fact that gorgeous pale violet colors of the jacarandas trees are more obvious in February, just in time for the beginning of the Lent season in which one starts to see doors and windows adorned with purple or violet bands. Purple is the official color of the Lent season; do you know why? Do a search in the archives for the answer.

Anyhow, as I took the shot of the group of young tourist walking around Antigua’s Main Plaza, I noticed the splendid pale violet color of the jacaranda tree framing the photo and I figured I ought to take a few shots for you to enjoy the delightful play of the violet color, branches, sunlight and sky. I am sure some the recent photos would look wonderful as 8×10 or 11×14 high quality prints in your office, cubicle, or at your workstation at home. Get your prints while to help you cope with winter season! 😉
