Spring is here
The cherry trees in Washington, D.C., are in bloom and that means that winter has come to an end and spring is here. Winter was unusually warm this year and we received no snowfall. That was terribly disappointing. D.C. can be beautiful when covered in snow, but without snow, it can be awfully drab. But now that spring is here, the colors are coming out.
I recently went out to shoot the cherry blossoms like I do every year, but the weather didn’t cooperate. A few weeks of unseasonably warm weather brought us an early bloom, but then a sudden cold snap hit us right when peak bloom hit. I went out twice to shoot the blossoms. The first time it was cold and sunny with clear skies and the second time it was cloudy and overcast. It was pretty, but neither of those are ideal conditions for landscape photography. Oh well, one can’t have perfect weather every time. It’s fun to get out there and try anyway.

I am so sorry that I missed the blossoms this year. I enjoyed the show through your photographs. Great job, John and thank you.
