While this photograph wasn’t taken today, it definitely captures how frozen DC currently is.
I shot this photograph of an early morning red dawn over Washington DC last month.
While it might be a little hard to tell in this Lincoln Memorial reflection, part of the water in the reflecting pool was frozen!
The last photograph I have to post from the night when it was really foggy in the DC area – the Lincoln Memorial in the fog.
This foggy approach to the Lincoln Memorial was taken back on the same night I shot “The Bridge To Nowhere” photograph.
I took this photograph of Memorial Bridge with the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument in the distance Friday afternoon after a storm had passed through the area.
The Lincoln Memorial statue can be difficult to photograph. The chamber of the memorial is fairly dark compared to the statue which is brightly illuminated. The statue is carved from Georgia white marble. The white marble reflects so much light that the details are either washed out or if you try to capture the bright details the surrounding chamber is completely black. Luckily there is a way to photograph the statue to capture all its detail.
Maybe a nice picture of a sunrise over DC will get the weather to change a little and give us some nice days in DC!
If you want some one on one time with Lincoln, the best time to go is early in the morning.
For many in the Washington DC area, this is the view they get early in the morning when they drive to work or get in their daily exercise while jogging or biking along the Potomac River.
