Washington DC cherry blossoms is my family’s yearly thing, to visit and enjoy the scenery in our nation’s capital. There is a big difference from the first time I stepped there in 2003 than today. There is so much progress.
It was a hike too. We parked near the US capitol and started walking. I’ve got 1 camera, a wide prime and mid-telephoto lenses and my tripod panoramic head. I had to have my tripod it’s a must for me and to all serious landscape photographers. My initial intention was just to really shoot panoramas and so I did.
Our plan was to go there during the weekend but there was a forecast of thunderstorm. So I had to take a day off on Friday just to have a glimpse of the remaining cherry blossoms.

It was indeed too hot too soon. I don’t know maybe thank goodness to global warming. The high was 82F. Cherry blossoms usually starts in April.
