Here are some late afternoon shots of the Cherry Blossoms from the Tidal Basin, Washington D.C. I prefer early morning shots but when I went down over the weekend it was very cloudy - the sun never 'came up' that morning. Comparing morning to evening, the blossoms are lit better in the morning than evening. This is a different perspective from last year when we had had three solid days of early morning sunshine with no wind. This year there was a breeze everytime I was there and rain/wind several times during the bloom. Peak bloom seemed to be much shorter as well. Enjoy - more to come.
