Kind of appropriate that it was so stormy above the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

I’m glad I woke up early Saturday morning. There was this amazing storm brewing just over the monument. Hopefully I got some great cloud images. I love photographing an oncoming storm. The air is so nice and crisp, breeze blowing and there’s just something about the lighting that makes storm clouds amazing.

Reflecting Pool, Washington DC

The reflecting pool in DC is a great spot to take pictures. Sunrise or sunset, it doesn’t disappoint. Unless they are renovating it or doing some kind of construction, which is very likely in the city. Usually doesn’t disappoint.

I was photographing the sunrise by the reflecting pool when I turned around and looked at the Lincoln Memorial. Mr. Lincoln was glowing! This orange light was radiating from the interior. I had to go inside.

I happened to be with my cousin who is the one standing ion the corner. I didn’t even notice him there until I was processing this image but left him in for scale.


No Tripod in the Capitol Building

When they don’t allow you to use tripods at the Capitol building, sometimes it’s best to just sit down with your knees up and use that as a tripod. You definitely get a different point of view that way.

This used to be the center of the Capitol. Pretty cool place to honor our government. It wasn’t until they built the House of Representatives portion of the Capitol when it was not longer the center.


Capitol Chandeliers

One of my favorite things in the Capitol building were the chandeliers. They are all so beautiful and unique. It really makes you feel like you’re in a grand room.
