Cherry blossoms

April 15, 2013

I missed the peak of the cherry blossoms again this year, but it was still a great time to see the flowering trees around the Tidal Basin. I decided to get there at dawn this time to check out the warm morning light. Most of the blossoms had fallen off the trees, but there were still some hanging on…

And when you arrive after the peak, you can see what happens after the blossoms fall off the trees:

    Pretty nice shots for missing the peak I would say.

    Gorgeous. I love when all the petals fall on the ground too.
