Awaiting Peak Bloom

Peak cherry blossom bloom is a big deal in DC, at least for me anyway. For a few brilliant weeks, the city I know and love transforms into a real life Instagram – no filter needed!

Cherry blossoms are very temperamental by nature, so peak bloom (aka the point where the blossoms are at their pinnacle of picturesque-ness) is dependent on slight changes in weather – something I track almost religiously. And this year, peak bloom has been pushed back several times from mid-March to its current prediction, this weekend. Good things come to those who wait, right?

I’m not exactly an early bird, but I really hope to dig deep and get up early before work to shoot some blossom pictures this week. Two, possibly three, years ago I took this photo on my iPhone (below). I’m still quite proud of it and it remains one of my favorite shots to date. I’m not sure if I can get a better one this year, but boy I am going to try.
