I kind of like the way the spike of the green branch frames the pink blossoms in this photo. This was taken on April 9, 2010, in Washington, DC. I was lucky enough to have a trip there at the tail end of cherry blossom season, and managed to dash over to the area near the Jefferson Memorial before my flight home and snap a few pictures of the cherry trees on the bank of the Potomac River. All of the cherry blossom photos are posted in honor of my Aunt, who was with me when I took them, and is now battling cancer.
