Cherry Blossoms 2

Posted by Elaine Hancock (Rockville, United States) on 23 April 2014 in Cityscape & Urban.

Cherry Blossoms along the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC. It was so crowded, I was afraid I might fall in!

Thank you for visiting! Any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated. I am unable to reply to all of the comments but I do read them every day.

This is tremendous,Elaine.What a beautiful shot. I am glad you didn't fall in because that water HAD to be cold. Barbara and I were just discussing the Cherry Blossoms last weekend lamenting that we had missed it again. We would love to go back - maybe next year :-) Stay well - sorry to miss you so much..just crazy right now...:-) But I am ok :-)

I like your point of view showing the curve along the basin edge. Together with the perspective, the blossoms in the foreground make a lovely composition.
