Fog and Blossoms
On Thursday, I made my annual trip to the Tidal Basin to shoot the cherry blossoms. I arrived very early in the morning and was greeted by a blanket of fog.
The fog allowed me to get some interesting shots. I particularly like the following photo. The flat lighting from the fog allowed me to achieve an even exposure and to capture a sense of dreaminess.
The presence of the fog and the fact that the trees bloomed a week earlier than expected helped keep the number of tourists to a much lower level than usual. With fewer tourists around, I was able to take some photos without people in my shots.
The fog lingered until about mid-morning. I was able to take a couple of other shots that I think turned out well.
