On August 23rd, 2011, the Washington DC area was hit with a magnitude 5.8 earthquake (Washington Post article about the earthquake along with a Huffington Post article about the earthquake). Needless to say, we aren’t used to earthquakes in Washington DC! Most offices and companies sent people home afterwards, wanting to make sure the structure of the office buildings were ok for employees to return to work.
Purchase the Cherry Blossoms at the Washington National Cathedral print directly from the artist.
Purchase the Cherry Blossoms at the Washington National Cathedral print alone or framed through Fine Art America.
The Tidal Basin around the Jefferson Memorial isn’t the only place in Washington, DC that has beautiful cherry blossoms that bloom every spring. There are lots of little areas here and there that have cherry tress that also bloom. One area is the Washington National Cathedral. On the side of the Cathedral is a garden area with a bench outside a stone wall. Over this bench is a large tree that was just full of blossoms. Made for a very interesting artistic HDR picture.
