This has been a photograph that I’ve had in my mind for over a year to take.  I knew that photographing the Iwo Jima Memorial when the sky is fire red would make a good photograph.  Luckily this morning everything came together!  

I had been thinking about what would make a good photograph of the Iwo Jima Memorial for some time.   If the conditions were just right I could get some very dramatic clouds in the sky and have the color be a fire red.  This morning I was driving into DC to take some photographs but hadn’t fully decided where I wanted to go.  I could tell by looking at the sky that it was going to be a really good sunrise.  Instead of going into DC I decided I would try the Iwo Jima Memorial and maybe, just maybe, everything would be right for the shot I wanted.  I wasn’t disappointed!  As the sun started to rise the entire sky slowly turned bright orange and red.  I’m glad I decided to go to the Iwo Jima Memorial this morning!
