WASHINGTON - APRIL 5: Rosario Ponte, of Alexandria, Virginia photographs the cherry tree blossoms that circle the Tidal Basin as the trees began to bloom April 5, 2005 in Washington. The National Cherry Blossom Festival -- a celebration to commemorate the 1912 gift of 3,000 Yoshino cherry trees from Japan -- will run until April 10. Originally from Venezuela, Ponte has been photographing the annual bloom for the past 30 years. She said it is her dream to be good enough to shoot photos for the National Geographic magazine.
