Golden Gate at Sunrise

I had the opportunity to photograph the Golden Gate Bridge.  This was my first time at the bridge during sunrise.   As on my first visit, I was fortunate to have remarkably clear weather, although my shooting angle was essentially the same as the last photo in my second visit.   Since I was shooting into the sunrise, I was pretty much done by the time the sun actually rose above the horizon.   I was glad of this later when I encountered the traffic delay from an accident on the way to SFO for my late morning flight.

Cherry Blossoms at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens

This morning I joined over twenty other photographers from the Loudoun Photo Club for a field trip to Meadowlark Botanical Gardens to capture the blooming Cherry Blossoms.  We had beautiful weather.  Here are a few of the images I captured.  I would appreciate any comments.
