Cherry Blossoms | National Mall + Tidal Basin | Washington DC Landscape Photographer

Peak bloom is my favorite time of year in Washington.  It’s the one time of year Northern Virginia traffic seems bearable when living outside the city, and the only time standing shoulder-to-shoulder with thousands of tourists, other photogs and Washingtonians at sunrise seems like a normal thing to do.  This year the cherry blossom trees had a bit of a rough ride: the weather warmed bringing out the early bloomers and then a late-winter snow dusted the gnarled branches leaving the blooms faded and brown.  In the end, the cherry blossoms gave us an unpredictable and lingering bloom, which for me meant four sunrise strolls around the Tidal Basin to catch them at their best.  Here are a few of my favorites!
