The Potomac River, which runs alongside Washington DC, provides a nice area to get night time reflections of the city in the water.
If you’ve never been inside the Jefferson Memorial before in Washington DC, looking at the zoomable photograph at the bottom of this post will give you the feeling that you’ve been there.
This past Monday I went to the Jefferson Memorial at dawn to take pictures of the sunrise. Luckily I got there before sunrise and I was able to capture such vivid colors. The other photographers weren’t so lucky.
The cherry blossoms in Washington DC are in full swing! The peak has been this week and it’s been better than a lot of previous years. Before it always seemed like right around the peak we’d get some rain or very windy days and the blossoms would fall off the tress quickly, but luckily, not this time!
Another image in my series of the Lonely Tourist at the various Washington, DC monuments. This one was taken on a calm night at the Jefferson Memorial. It was surprising how little wind there was, but I’m glad it was so calm so that the leaves on the trees didn’t come out blurry.
I took this picture of the Jefferson Memorial on a cold Thursday night in December. I was there over an hour to get the image I wanted. I like doing this type of picture most when it’s cold outside, mostly because there are less people around and the air is very clear.
This is one of my images that is very detailed, the final image is 487MP in size, stitched from 157 individual pictures. The image can be printed very very large and still retain a high amount of detail.
