WASHINGTON D.C. CHERRY BLOSSOMS
By Navin Sarma
As winter winds down, we here in the Washington, D.C. area look forward to the harbinger of warmer days through the beautiful cherry blossoms that surround our city in late March and early April. A gift from the Japanese over 100 years ago, the cherry blossoms that surround the architecture of Washington, D.C. showcases the beauty of both nature and man made structures in the capital city.
I have been capturing cherry blossoms in Washington D.C. for several years now. During the cherry blossom festival, the city is transformed with the revelry of concerts, picnics, shows, and events that celebrate the coming of spring. With that comes a trove of tourists, who are appreciating Washington, D.C. often for the first time.
With so many people around, it sometimes can be challenging to have a peaceful moment to yourself in appreciation of the cherry blossoms. That’s why I often shoot at sunrise during the cherry blossom festival, where not only can you appreciate the colors and mood of daybreak, but you can also find vast parts of the city still devoid of crowds.
To tourists and locals, the cherry blossom festival is one of the best times to explore the city. You can appreciate the beauty of the architecture in the monuments and memorials and the beauty in nature with the budding cherry blossoms all throughout the city. Prepare to meet new friends from all walks of life who converge on the city for a common appreciation of its sights. Join us in early April as we chase the light and bloom and capture beautiful images.
Join us in Washington D.C. for a Cherry Blossom Photo Adventure of a Lifetime. If you can’t make it for the Cherry Blossoms, we run several 4-day D.C. Photo Adventures throughout the year.
