This morning I dragged myself out of bed at the truly wretched hour of 4:15 ack emma so that I could trek down to the Tidal Basin for a photography class (well, a photo safari. highly recommended, whatever you call it). The cherry blossoms are in full bloom; the weather was almost eerily perfect, and it was, well, awesome.

This was my first outing with my shiny new dSLR (because I'm totally not counting my brief experimentations at home with the dog...wait, that sounded worse than I intended), and I could not be happier. It's a bit of a learning process, but the magic of digital plus four gig memory cards means I could experiment as much as I wanted to. Can experiment - I'm just getting started.

Out of the three hundred-odd photos I took this morning, here are twenty-six good ones, plus one I couldn't pass up posting.

From pre-dawn to full sun preview:
