Washington Monument Fog Part II

Do you remember earlier this year when I posted this picture?
It was taken on January 4th around 8a. I woke up early that morning to take sunrise images hoping for fog but didn’t see it. The sun rose and feeling a little discouraged, I walked back to my car. All of the sudden the sun light changed. I turned around and the fog I had hoped for appeared! I was already on my way home so the closest and easiest place for me to park and capture this was at the Tidal Basin. I ran like a mad woman with my camera bag and tripod. You probably saw my hair flipping up and down from a mile away. I didn’t care because it was totally worth it. First off, it was an incredibly beautiful morning. The weather was spring like temperatures in the middle of winter. When there were breaks in the fog, you could see that the sky was very blue. I’ve seen fog cover the Washington Monument before but never like this. Never with the little peak-a-boo of the tip of the monument and never with such blue skies. I stuck around for almost an hour trying to capture both the Washington Monument and Jefferson memorial with this fog. Its a morning that’d be hard to forget.
This is the non-cropped version of the first image I posted. So no, I wasn’t standing at the old post office. I wasn’t on an airplane. I wasn’t flying a drone. Just some good ol fashion photoshopping 🙂 Well, exciting news!!! Washingtonian has put this image in their March 2017 issue! How amazing is that! Its out on news stands now so I bought one for myself and 1 for my grandma, 1 for my mom, and basically every copy that I can find. So if you don’t actually see the issue in your grocery store then you know that I’ve been there.
