Summer is winding down but that means the cooler weather of Fall is just around the corner, nice! So in celebration you need to head out on a work break, but before you do, please take a few moments to check out this 30-cm WorldView-3 image collected during the 2017 National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC. Held each year in our nation’s capital during late March to early April, the National Cherry Blossom Festival is a celebration of the pink delicate flowers that open to the world during the Spring all along the Tidal Pool and by the Washington Monument. This image was collected on March 22, 2017 which is early in the bloom season and as you can see, the pink flowers are barely visible – but you can see them particularly along the west side of the Tidal Pool. And yes, okay you caught us, we did turn up the saturation on this WorldView-3 image to accentuate the delicate pink flowers as that is a hard color to capture in imagery.

Have a great rest of your workday!
