The monuments and memorials in Washington DC are always a good location to take photographs. Not only of them, but also locations to shoot from. Such as here, looking out at Rosslyn in Arlington, VA as the edge of night approaches.
If you go to the US Capitol early in the morning you can get a nice reflection in the water. But, you have to get there before the ducks wake-up!
I entered some photographs in the EPSON international pano awards for 2013 and found out today that I won some awards in the Open Category! The Open Category is open to all photographers, professional and amateur – so the competition is a little harder than just the amateur category.
I took this photograph, Night Scaffolding, last night at the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial. Even though it was a Sunday night and it was 9:30PM, there were still lots of tourists walking around in the area!
With it being summer the area on the National Mall is normally filled with people jogging, walking, biking, or playing sports in the afternoon – at least the areas just in front of the museums and art galleries. But if you just cross the street you’ll find a nice sea of green to capture the scaffolding at sunset.
