Almost all of the monuments in Washington DC are close to some form of water.  As long as it’s a calm night you can capture their reflections in the water and create beautiful symmetrical shots.

I took this photograph back in November in the early morning – it’s one of many that sometimes gets lost on my harddrive only to resurface later during some “house cleaning”!  According to the date stamp embedded in the files it was 5:40AM to be more exact.  They hadn’t turned the fountains on yet for the day so the water was still.  I was also very lucky that the morning air was very calm.  Even just a slight breeze will ripple the top of the water creating blur in the reflections.

The World War II Memorial is one of the newer monuments/memorials constructed on the National Mall in Washington DC.  Here’s a photograph taken back in January of 2004 during its construction:

Personally I think it’s a memorial that looks best at night.  With all the lights illuminating it and the reflections in the water make it perfect for a night time visit.
