Photograph of the Washington Monument with the scaffolding being installed to repair the damage from the Virginia earthquake in August, 2011.
This is what the current cherry blossoms look like on Friday March 29, 2013. The National Park Service website says that the peak bloom will be April 3rd to the 6th. Since there’s not much to see right now, I went back through my photos from 2012 and found some more to post to hold people over till the blossoms finally appear for 2013!
If you want some one on one time with Lincoln, the best time to go is early in the morning.
For many in the Washington DC area, this is the view they get early in the morning when they drive to work or get in their daily exercise while jogging or biking along the Potomac River.
Nothing like hanging out under a bridge on a nice sunny day.
The Air Force Memorial in Arlington, VA has three large stainless steel spires that stretch out into the sky. Normally photographs of this memorial show it from the side, looking like three curved spikes coming out of the ground. I decided to take a slightly different perspective with the memorial.
Hope everyone is ready for the cherry blossoms. It’s only a couple of weeks away before they make their appearance yet again!
Just last week we had a threat of getting a lot of snow, and then today we get beautiful high 50s/low 60s degree sunny weather! Who’s ready for spring??
Another photograph looking out over Los Angeles, CA from the Griffith Observatory. The other photograph, LA At Night, was at night time with the city glowing in the valley below. This photograph was taken later that morning as the sun was getting close to crossing the horizon.
If you live in the DC area, or travel here for the Cherry Blossom Festival, looks like they’ve settled on some dates. This year it looks like between March 26th and March 30th will be the peak times for the cherry blossoms for 2013.
