Cherry Blossoms in our Nation’s Capital

A couple of weeks ago, the cherry blossoms in Washington, DC were in full bloom. The National Cherry Blossom Festival in the capital is in its 99th iteration and marks the coming of spring in a visual celebration of pink and white blossoms surrounding some of our nations most stunning and recognizable landmarks. It presents some unique photo opportunities, but requires patience due to the thousands of other people who’ve had the same idea. The festival will continue for another few days; though the springtime rain has brought down a lot of the blossoms, there are still a few events planned before it’s time to start planning for the 100th anniversary of the festival.

If you missed it this year, here are a few of the photos I managed to snap in spite of all the other tourists.
