Spring is here !!

I took this photo this thursday at the Tidal Basin, here in DC.

If you are not from DC here is a small history about this Cherry Blossom festival. The blooming of these flowers mark the arrival of spring. Its really a wonderful treat for the eyes.

The National Cherry Blossom Festival is an annual commemoration of the gift in 1912 of 3,000 cherry trees by Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to Washington as a memorial of national friendship between the United States and Japan and a celebration of the continued close relationship between the people of the two countries.

PS:The picture was taken using my Kodak cx 7430. Let me know how you like the picture.

The picture looks subperb. Not sure if you added some "effectu" to it later. Anyways, it gives a fresh perspective to spring as always.
