The Indy Eye: Jacarandas

Springtime in Buenos Aires! The capital is bursting with colour as the jacarandas open up their purple blossoms and grace the city with their beauty. Contrasting nicely with the light green tipa trees, the jacarandas bring joy and a peaceful respite to the quick pace of life in the capital. Enjoy the bursts of purple as you relax in the plazas, stroll down the avenues and breathe in the spring air. Argentina Independent photographer Beatrice Murch has spent the last four years capturing the beauty of these trees and shares them with our readers below.

  1. Beatrice, these are absolutely stunning. What a beautiful way to end the week. I may wish to purchase one of these printed if it´s poss :D

    Beautifull pictures.
    Just a comment: The nest is not a parrot’s nest. That nest belongs to an “Hornero” a brown bird which is very common in BA.

    Thank you so much Javier for the correction. I saw parrots around when I took the photograph and so assumed it was one of their nests. I have corrected the caption. Thank you again!

    Thanks for your beautiful photographs! I have always thought that-if you are a tourist- the best time to visit my city, Buenos Aires, is spring with its jacarandas bursting in purple. Your work shows… just that!
