Beautiful Earth  - 
 
 
I find myself always moving to a panoramic when I shoot at this side of the Tidal Basin (near the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial and Martin Luther King Memorial). In contrast to my last image, this was slightly later in the morning just after the sun had risen. The brighter and more direct sunlight turned the pinks in the high sky to a more orange color. But the dramatic shape and color of the sunrise was not lost.
This is a stitch of 5 images shot vertically at f/10, ISO 320, 6 sec and merged into a panoramic.

Sunrise at the Tidal Basin offers many opportunities for a landscape photographer. For one, one encounters a very nice perspective when facing due east, where the sun and moon rise and color in the sky would appear on days when weather will allow it. Also, it provides a very nice view towards the Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument. Lastly, the Tidal Basin itself is a great compositional element – a fast shutter speed can render very nice textures and reflections and a long exposure can reflect the sky.

Yesterday morning, the high clouds lit up just enough on either side of the frame. I used a long exposure to reflect this same drama in the water. I actually had to tone down the color due to some white balance warming that inevitably comes while using (supposedly NEUTRAL, but not really) neutral density
filters.

NPS recently announced that the peak bloom for cherry blossoms in 2015 in Washington DC and the Cherry Blossom Festival is April 11-15 2015. You can read more on the <a href="http://www.nationalcherryblossomfestival.org/about/bloom-watch/" title="National Cherry Blossom Festival" target="_blank">National Cherry Blossom Festival</a> or <a href="http://www.nps.gov/cherry/cherry-blossom-bloom.htm" title="NPS Peak Cherry Blossoms" target="_blank">NPS website</a>.

The past few years have flipped between peaks in March and April. This picture is from March 2011, when the following morning I captured my most popular image, Awakening. I passed by this image for years and finally decided to process it... I actually like it quite a bit since it shows the Cherry Blossoms in a bit different scene - under twilight and stars. I spent a bit of time dodging the stars so they would come out brighter - so I would consider this image as one where I took some fine art liberties.

Hard to believe that Cherry Blossom season is almost upon us. I probably wont be shooting much of it this year as our first child is due to arrive around early April! So here I am posting a shot from a couple of years from my favorite venue.
LAST ASK - please vote for me for Best of DC (http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/bestofpoll/nominations/vote/3683?year=2015). Thanks!
