I actually had to take some saturation out of this image. The colors from the leaves were really vibrant. Right after sunrise the entire Basin lights up with color. When the sun hits the fall foliage, the color becomes unbelievable beautiful to see. The oranges become bright and full of life. well don’t take my word for it, check out the image.
The Tidal Basin is extremely popular for cherry blossoms season, but is underrated for fall foliage.
