Awesome - thanks for sharing - did you take those yourself?

I miss DC. Not the traffic or the volume of people, but the feel of the place. I ran the Cherry Blossom 10 miler when I was 17, on a day when it looked JUST like that. I actually befriended a woman who ran Duke's botanical gardens about 10 years ago, who somehow had managed to get seeds from the very batch of Yoshino cherry trees Japan gave to us. I had no luck getting to grow.

Thanks again for sharing - beautiful...

Boone, I did take these. I was permitted to use the fixed 14mm (Fisheye) lens from work. That is how I got the wide angle shots. Unfortunately, the company's Nikon D3 was in the shop and I was unable to acquiesce a D300 from them since we are preparing for the busy season and they are keeping strict access to the stock. I used my D70 for these shots.

I have been known to step out in the middle of the street to get a good shot.
