Rosslyn vistas clothed in cherry blossoms

Millions of persons from around the world are streaming to the tidal basin park to see magnificent vistas of Rosslyn clothed in cherry blossoms.  Particularly impressive this year is the crane gracefully soaring above the Rosslyn skyscape.  Cranes have been central figures in East Asian art for millennia.  The motion of cranes in relation to Rosslyn's development was explored in Si Jae Byan's monumental Crane Clock.  Rosslyn's crane makes this year's National Cherry Blossom Festival extra special.
