About This Image

Across the tidal basin Thomas Jefferson stands proudly, overlooking picnicers and boaters who flocked to Washington D.C. to enjoy the beautiful gift of the cherry trees by Japan in 1912 in full bloom.

Being at peak, it was difficult to enjoy a hot dog or drink as the day was refreshingly breezy and petals showered us and our food non-stop!

Lovely photo, I visited there years ago. Carol

Thank you for your comment, Steve. I rather liked the bare tree's texture offsetting the cherry trees and the stone monument. I did crop out several cars in the foregound and the crowds on my side of the tidal basin. Vicki

Seconding everything Steve said. I love the black and white, and the composition. Great photo.

Great shot, Vicki. I think the B&W works well with this subject, and the composition is improved by having the memorial off-centre.
