Sunlight on Dogwood

A branch of dogwood blossoms at Sherwood Gardens. I angled myself to put an orange tulip bed behind the branch to get the color in the background.

Napa Valley Fog

Napa Valley Fog

A thick fog crawls over the hills in Napa Valley, California. 5D, Canon 70-200mm f/4 lens at 200mm, f/9. Mike and I were in the San Francisco area for a few days. With some friends, we drove through the wine country one afternoon to enjoy some wine tasting and breathtaking scenery.

Cherry Blossom Festival

Jefferson Memorial

Washington D.C. cherry blossoms

The Yoshino cherry trees in D.C. are in full bloom right now, in perfect timing with the National Cherry Blossom Festival. I recommend seeing the tidal basin area half an hour before sunset. The sight of all the cherry blossoms glowing in the golden light is spectacular.
