The cherry blossom festival in Washington DC is a true spectacle. I was fortunate enough to be one of the millions who visit DC every year during this time. If you ever get an opportunity you should visit this place… The prime blossom stays just for 3 or 4… So plan well in ahead.
Now about this picture… This picture is a panoramic view of the tidal basin. The cherry trees are basically all along the banks of the tidal basin… I took several pics and stitched them together in Photoshop Elements. You can see the Washington Monument to the right and the Jefferson memorial to your left. One of the things I like about this picture is the depth that you see on the sky almost giving a 3D effect.

The below picture is a macro shot of a cherry blossom bunch… there was a little bud that was waiting for its turn… It was almost as if the little bud was a child sitting tight under its mom..
