An incredible and peaceful scene watching the sun rise among the cherry blossoms. Hundreds of people enjoying the sight, yet the calm and quiet made you feel like you had it all to yourself. 3 shot HDR using Photomatix 4.2.
The first rays of sunrise spill into the Tidal Basin and onto the bright pink and white petals of the cherry blossom trees as the Washington Monument stands watch over DC. A perfectly clear Sunday sky provides the perfect setting for the tens of thousands of visitors taking in the scene across the city this weekend.
