It's getting warmer

Spring arrived, but it certainly didn't feel like it. It snowed here on the first day of spring. Fortunately, the weather is starting to warm up. While the cherry blossoms aren't out yet, they will be here soon. In the spirit of the coming season, I shot a few sunrise photos.

Visible in the skyline is the Potomac River, Arlington Memorial Bridge, the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the dome of the Capitol, which is undergoing restoration.

I love the color and how the sun is just peeking over the horizon. I also took the following just a bit earlier:

I think the purple skies are really great. I'm quite happy with both shots. However, I figured I could get another nice shot shortly after sunrise, so I visited the Tidal Basin and shot this:

The cherry blossoms should be here at the end of next week!
