I took this photograph of the Tidal Basin earlier this week in the afternoon – one of the few times we had some nice sunshine and blue sky!
The full size version of this photo is about 260 megapixels in size. There’s a lot more detail in the image then you realize looking at this much smaller version on the website. For example, you can see tourists inside the Jefferson Memorial:

I always find it interesting when I make large high resolution images like this to look around and see what details are present that I couldn’t see while I was taking the photographs.
