This picture was taken along the shores of the Potomac River next to the Memorial Bridge, on the Virigina side.  This was taken at sunset while some storm clouds were moving in from behind me.  On a dark still night you can get the reflection of the monuments in the water.

Iwo Jima Memorial – Front View

Another picture of the Iwo Jima Memorial, this time a front view.  You don’t see pictures from this angle as often as you do from the side.  While you don’t see the entire memorial, it does add more drama to the image.  This picture was taken a little earlier while there was still some light in the sky so you can slightly make out the clouds in the sky.  This is during the blue hour of the day when the sky takes on a vibrant blue color.

Equipment used for this photo:
Canon 5D Mark II
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS Lens

The same year I took the picture of the Christmas Tree in front of the U.S. Capitol (U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree – 2009) I also took this picture of the White House.  I was there to see the National Christmas Tree at the Ellipse and liked how the White House was looking that night.  I was surprised that none of the security guards said anything to me about setting up my tripod to take this picture!

The Pentagon Memorial is located next to the Pentagon where the terrorist attack took place on September 11th, 2001.  It’s a little bit of a hard memorial to find because you really can’t see it unless you are in the memorial.  It’s surrounded by the Pentagon and two large roads in the area, so you don’t really notice it.

You can learn more about the memorial from the official website.
