The peak for the blossoms finally happened yesterday and I was able to make it there for the sunrise. I decided to do an image like my ‘Night Blossoms’ from last year, which is why I named this one ‘Night Blossoms 2014‘.
If you go see Jefferson in the morning you’ll almost always have the memorial all to yourself.
If the are lucky and the air is very still, you can get a nice reflection of the Jefferson Memorial in the Tidal Basin.
I took this photograph of the Tidal Basin earlier this week in the afternoon – one of the few times we had some nice sunshine and blue sky!
This will be the last of the cherry blossom pictures for this year! Although since it was so early in the morning the blossoms aren’t that easy to see.
Sometimes when you are really lucky you can get the photograph before the rain comes in.
The Tidal Basin is a really great location for some amazing sunrises in Washington DC.
Happy Valentine’s day everyone! I figure the most common color associated with Valentine’s day is red. Therefore, what better to post on Valentine’s day then a photograph that’s almost all red!
A lot of people believe that Washington DC was built upon swamp land, but that’s really just a myth.
