DC Cherry Blossoms in 2021
It seems increasingly likely that DC will still be under COVID-19 restrictions in spring 2021 while the cherry blossoms are blooming. So it's shaping up to be a good year to follow along from afar from the safety and comfort of your home.
The National Park Service has determined that peak bloom was reached today, on April 9. The cherry blossoms are now in full bloom and looking beautiful and in their prime.
It’s another warm and sunny morning. Photographers were out in force this morning ready for the sunrise. Unfortunately, a wispy cloud on the horizon diluted the light a bit so we didn’t get much of that rich golden light we sometimes get, but there were some beautiful shots to be had nonetheless.
Thank you to the photographers who have already submitted their photos this morning. I’ll post some of them shortly. In the meantime, here are a few I took this morning.
At this time of year, there are beautiful flowers to be had all over the place. Maybe in your backyard. Maybe in the local park.
These are ere are some of my favorite books that I've reviewed on taking photos of flowers:
