So, I didn’t make it to the blood moon. I have 3 really good excuses, but thats just it, they’re excuses. I tried to make up for it by going the next day and trying to capture the moon. I was hoping for one of the points to point at the moon but got there too late. Next time, Moon.


Storm Brewing over the Lincoln Memorial

I was walking back to my car when I thought I would see what the Lincoln Memorial looked like in my camera. The light was gorgeous and I ended up spending at least another hour shooting the memorials.

It was fun watching the clouds roll in. They were looking pretty fierce and I was getting ready to run to my car as soon as it started to pour but it never came. A light sprinkle here and there but cleared up in a few hours. My kinda rain!

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.


Inside the Lincoln Memorial, Washington DC

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.
