4 Seasons of Sunrises at the Tidal Basin

Spring Spring

It took me a few years to get these. The Cherry Blossom image was easy, the summer was even easier except that the sun rises really early that time of year.

All I remember about that winter shot is how cold it was, the Tidal Basin was frozen and there was snowfall on top of the ice. The cold hurt bad as I waited for the sun to rise.

Very few folks realize that on a good year the Cherry Blossom Trees turn a spectacular fall color when the conditions are just right. Doesn't happen every year and this was the hardest image to get.
