Delightful Tidal Basin

Besides Arlington National Cemetery and the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, the Tidal Basin is one of my favorite photo subjects in the Washington, DC area. Each season, it changes and shows a different face. In winter, snow might cover the ground beneath the Tidal Basin's tree groves. In spring, its trees are full of Cherry Blossoms. In summer, the water reflects its surrounding green trees. And then in autumn, falling red, yellow and orange leaves create ripples in this human-made reservoir like in today's post.

Regardless of the season or its appearance, the stillness and beauty of the Tidal Basin delights my spirit and camera and draws me back again and again.
