Cherry Blossoms Up Close

Observing the panorama of Cherry Blossoms in bloom along the Tidal Basin, spectators can be so overwhelmed by the view, they lose sight of the beauty of the individual flower. Up close, the Cherry Blossom itself is small and delicate, easily knocked to the ground by rain, wind and/or disrespectful humans. Depending on the light, blossoms appear white, light pink or a combination of the two colors. During peak bloom, they are abundant and hundreds laden branches with splendor and pooled weight. My camera and I are counting down the days to this year's blossom cycle. Fingers crossed that it will as spectacular as past years.
