Second Cherry Blossom Sunrise Shoot

So we now have the preditions in for the Cherry Blossoms and it looks like most are going to be during the week. I am able to host a second sunrise event. We will still be going on the 12th of April but if this session works better for you please change your RSVP. I did this last year and it was worth getting up super early to capture the blossoms at sunrise. I will update the date/time if things are delayed or early this year. We will meet at the Paddle Boats and spread out from there.
The best way to get in is via Metro but if you need to drive in and want to park then I can reccomend LEfant Plaza hotel. The parking at the Paddle Boats is blocked off during the events for vendors.

    With this many people Cara, I would assume that at least some of us plan to stay close to the Jefferson Memorial--I do.

    I checked metro, and it looks like I can't get there until 6 am, will I be able to catch up to the group somehow? I will be walking from the Smithsonian metro. Did that last year and it is not a bad walk.

    So I'll be taking a cab to avoid morning traffic after we're done. I'll be waiting by the paddle boat dock, wearing a black coat and a brown backpack. Looking forward to seeing everyone and remember to bring a tripod if you have one.

      L'enfant is a hike. We parked there last weekend for the fireworks in a public garage. On street get there early like before 6am and you bcan get on street BUT you wont be able to get there and back to feed the meter. Try parking at the public golf course. I parked at work last year then took a taxi over waited forever for one to get back.

    Sorry but we've had an emergency situation here and I won't be able to host/attend anything till the 12th. If there is anyone that is willing to be the "Host" of the event please let me know. Otherwise I will have to cancel this session. Thank you for your understanding.
