The Potomac River, which runs alongside Washington DC, provides a nice area to get night time reflections of the city in the water.

This panoramic photograph of Washington DC was taken from the rocky shores of Lady Bird Johnson Park.  From the park you can look over the Potomac River at the National Mall and see the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, and Jefferson Memorial.  I got there very early in the morning, about an hour and a half before sunrise.  I was lucky that the sky was completely clear of clouds and there was almost no wind.  Having little wind allowed the river surface to take on an almost glassy surface.  The tide was low, so the rocks you see in the photograph were exposed.  If the tide had have been at a normal level, I wouldn’t have been able to stand where I was!
