Cherry Blossom Time!   Leave a comment

Walked to the Mall after work on Friday and captured these photos. A wonderful time to be in DC, except this year it’s unseasonably cold. Nevertheless, the water’s edge was packed with tourists (i.e. camera-toting) and locals (i.e. picnicking).

Frost Drops and Stalactites   Leave a comment

Captured these leaves with frozen drops of rain on a recent walk in the neighborhood, using my umbrella to ensure a uniform background. The second shot reminded me of stalactites in a cave.

It’s just cold enough that the rain freezes instantaneously – time to bundle up in front of the fireplace and not leave the house!
