Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC

If you plan on shooting the Cherry Blossoms this year you better get ready.  The Cherry Blossoms in DC, around the Tidal Basin,  are reaching Peak Bloom very early this year. Peak Bloom expected Tuesday 3/20.  Get down early to beat the crowds and capture wonderful views to include the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial.  If you happen to miss them around the Tidal Basin you always have the chance to catch them a bit later on the grounds of the US Capitol - the West side of the US Capitol offers some opportunity for great images as well as the East Side near the Supreme Court.  Here's an article included in this month's Popular Photography including a few tips from me on photographing the Cherry Blossoms in DC.  I'm hoping for a day or two of dramatic early morning light to add images to my Cherry Blossom Gallery within my collection of Washington DC Images.
