The iconic Cherry Blossoms of Washington, D.C. in their peak bloom. The Japanese term “Hanami” translates literally to flower viewing and refers to the enjoyment of the transient beauty of flowers. The Washington, D.C. Cherry Blossom peak bloom in late March / early April attracts an estimated 1.5 million visitors a year to experience the nearly 3800 Cherry trees. Visitors will find mostly Yoshino Cherry Trees, but also Kwanzan, Akebono, Usuzumi, and a handful of other varieties. The cherry trees in bloom mark the first real sign of spring in the area. The views along with the warmer weather make it a pleasure for tourists and locals alike to get out and enjoy downtown Washington, D.C. and the National Mall.
Taken from a rooftop near the Tidal Basin, my goal with this panoramic image was to convey the entire scene during the D.C. Cherry Blossom fervor. Washington, D.C. is not a large city like New York City with the plethora of tall buildings as far as the eye can see. Rather it is filled with many unique sites and monuments which make up the cohesive whole of D.C.
This high-resolution photo allows for making extremely large fine art prints and produces a hyper-realistic look unlike that of traditional fine art photography. It provides the viewer unrestricted access to the most intricate details of the many flowering cherry tree blossoms in their peak bloom and the nuances of the surrounding area. The trees guide the viewer along the Tidal Basin from the Thomas Jefferson Memorial to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. The viewer can also explore Arlington, Virginia, across the Potomac River, the Air Force Memorial, Pentagon, Arlington Cemetery, Rosslyn, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, and the White House to name a few of the sites. It isn’t a surprise that myriad people from all over the world come to Washington, D.C. to enjoy the ephemeral beauty of the peak bloom of the Cherry Blossoms.
