Brief Directions

Park where you can near the Tidal Basin and take a walk around. This tree was near the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.

Notes

Before sunrise watch your step. You may run over a photographer or knock a tripod into the water. There are a lot of photographers out in springtime to shoot the Cherry Blossoms. About an hour after sunrise the photographers leave and the tourists pour in. But the flowers are incredible.

Description

Sunrise on the Tidal Basin is a magical place during the blooming of the Cherry Trees. This tree had a blooming branch arched over the edge of the Tidal Basin. Using the dark water as a background I captured the soft morning sun on the delicate flowers. I shot at 200mm, f/11, 1/50 second.
