2013 Peak Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC

Today I made it down to the Tidal Basin for the Sunrise to see the Cherry Blossoms in peak bloom. 2013 has been a very different year than 2012, when the Cherry Blossoms bloomed on the Tidal basin on March 20. Today, April 9, I would say the blossoms are in full swing! More visits to come this week, but I hope you enjoy this one.

I got my composition set up to frame the Washington Monument. I tried to angle it to not emphasize the scaffolding. I waited until the sun rose in the position I expected, and the blossoms shimmered in the light:

REMEMBER. Prints are only 25% off until April 15th!

Till next time.
