Orange and Pink Sunrise at the Tidal Basin

Yesterday, I hosted another workshop, with the plan to shoot the Cherry Blossoms on the Tidal Basin.

While the Cherry Blossoms at the Tidal Basin have not yet bloomed at all (NPS has shifted their peak Cherry Blossom bloom for Washington D.C. and the Cherry Blossom Festival to 3-6 April), we still got together to capture the sunrise.

The sun was positioned to rise between the Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Monument (which just began its construction and the scaffolding at its base), so I assembled the group on the Southwest corner of the Tidal Basin. Shortly before sunrise, the clouds lit up with color and texture which nicely complemented the ripples on the water:

This week, it’s off to Niagara Falls for a day before my friend’s wedding, then next week the focus shifts back to peak bloom of the Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC.

TILL NEXT TIME!
