A panoramic view of the famous cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin under a clear sky on a sunny day in early spring at the start of the National Cherry Blossom Festival in 2012. There are throngs of visitors along the bank and on the steps of the Jefferson Memorial, while some are taking in the scenery from paddle boats. Major landmarks (from left to right) include the Washington Monument, tower of the Old Post Office building, Bureau of Engraving and Printing and the Jefferson Memorial; the main facade of the White House is just visible through the trees above the right end of the low bridge at left.
