If you follow my photography you know that the Washington State Capitol grounds is one of my favorite places locally to shoot. I shoot there all year long but something special happens every spring when the trees start to bloom. It really is a capitol in bloom for just a few days.
When you click through to my gallery, by clicking on this image, you will see that I have another shot that is VERY similar to this one, I captured it two years ago, and blogged about it here. I actually shoot this scene each and every year, I just don’t always share those images or blog about them.
This is becoming an ever more popular scene to shoot each spring. Five years ago when I started shooting it you might come across one other photographer while you were there. That increased a little each year, and this year when we went down to shoot there were at least 10 other people there shooting, some from Portland.
If you see this post now, and are in the Olympia area, you still have time to get to the capitol and capture this scene for yourself.
