Photograph of Key Bridge during the “great fog of 2013″ in Washington DC.
With Washington DC blanketed in a layer of fog, it was a perfect time for spies to exchange information.
Sometimes when I go out to photograph one subject, I find that that subject isn’t the most interesting thing to photograph. There’s something else there that’s much more interesting!
The weather conditions were good enough this past week that I was able to go over and take my yearly picture of the Christmas tree at the US Capitol. You’ll want to read the rest of this post so you can get to the zoomable version of this photo. There you’ll be able to zoom into it and see all the detail!
Every year just before the holidays start there are two tree lightings that happen in Washington DC. One is the well known National Christmas Tree which is at The Ellipse in front of the White House. The other is the lesser known tree in front of the US Capitol, which is known as the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree. The Christmas Tree at the U.S. Capitol you can get much closer to then the National Christmas Tree. There also never seems to be a crowd at the tree!
In order to get colors in the sky like this you need to get up pretty early in the morning. This photograph of the US Capitol was taken before the sun had even crossed the horizon. Make sure you click to the full post so you can view the zoomable version of this photograph.
