Fall at the Tidal Basin, Washington D.C.

On the evening of Friday Nov. 6th I checked the weather for the following day as I do most nights. It called for it to be unusually warm with a light storm front coming in shortly after sunrise. I could barely sleep through the night thinking of the awesome conditions this may bring. I set my alarm for 5am but was awake by 4:30 and commenced to getting ready. Possibly unknown to most tourists in Washington D.C. is the fact that the cherry blossom trees that they have grown to love and flock to every Spring are equally as beautiful in the Fall. In the Spring during peak blossom you likely will have a hard time taking a photo of these wonderful trees without a person in the frame. In very stark contrast the Fall brings few people to the Tidal Basin for sunrise and you are able to enjoy with no interruptions. On Saturday morning I did just that.
