18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
A Zen Retreat

Cherry Blossom season in Washington, D.C. is typically a very busy time with crowds of people everywhere you turn. It is very unusual to find a quiet spot to sit and reflect in silence to take in the the peaceful beauty of it all. But that is exactly what these ladies were lucky enough to find on this April afternoon, and I was lucky enough to be there to witness it.
