Washington Cherry Blossom Digitals

Going to see the cherry blossoms in DC this year, was an awesome experience. The Sunday afternoon that we were there, the tidal basin was lined with thousands of people taking pictures, walking, smiling, and enjoying gorgeous weather. Yes, it was a little windy (not a very nice thing when you want the blossoms to be still so you can photograph them!), but everything considered, the weather was beautiful and the blossoms at their peak.

In fact, I got tricked into thinking that winter was totally gone and spring had come extremely early this year Continue reading “The View From My Kitchen Window”
