DC Cherry Blossoms in 2021
No peak bloom forecasts for 2021 have been issued yet.
It seems increasingly likely that DC will still be under COVID-19 restrictions in spring 2021 while the cherry blossoms are blooming. The Washington DC area is currently assessed at a very high risk level. So it's shaping up to be a good year to follow along from afar from the safety and comfort of your home.
For those who aren’t able to make it in person this year, here’s a 360° interactive video I shot early this morning (March 26, 2016) at several spots around the Tidal Basin. It’s not quite like being there, admittedly, but at least the parking is easier. This was taken right around and just after sunrise, before the crowds really built up.
If you’re wondering, this was shot with a Ricoh Theta S camera, a nifty little camera that has two lenses that when combined shoots 360° panoramic still images, timelapse, and video. I’ve been using them for a while, and I’ll be posting an in-depth review of it soon on my main site.
So take it for a spin.
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:
