  1. Since this question seems to come up each year, I thought I would pass along that the National Park Service says the cherry blossoms here in Washington, D.C., are expected to reach peak bloom between April 8 and April 12. That's at the tail end of the National Cherry Blossom Festival, which runs March 20 to April 13. At least they are blooming during the festival this year -- some years they have come and gone and people coming here for the festival are disappointed.
  2. Thanks for sharing this info. Having shot the cherry blossoms here on the Tidal Basin as well as some other places (like LACMA in LA), as a photographer it's something definitely worth making the effort to shoot.
  3. I lived in the states most of my life and became a photographer when I left. Never got to photograph the cherry blossoms =/ lol
  4. FYI--this weekend (April 13-14) the cherry blossoms are at their peak on the Tidal Basin.
