While this photo wasn’t taken this morning as the Snowquester starts to hit the Washington DC area, it still shows Lincoln quietly waiting for a good snow fall.
The Potomac River, which runs alongside Washington DC, provides a nice area to get night time reflections of the city in the water.
Decided to try integrating Zoomify into my website so I can display some of my high resolution stitched images. Zoomify allows you to zoom in and view very large high resolution images in a web browser. For the first one I put up my image The Lonely Tourist at the Lincoln Memorial after converting it into a zoomable image.
This picture was taken along the shores of the Potomac River next to the Memorial Bridge, on the Virigina side. This was taken at sunset while some storm clouds were moving in from behind me. On a dark still night you can get the reflection of the monuments in the water.
Equipment used for this photo:
Canon 5D Mark II
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens
Slik 700DX Tripod
Bogen 3030 3-way pan/tilt head
Looking down the corridor of columns on the side of the Lincoln Memorial at the World War II Memorial, Washington Monument and the US Capitol. This photo was taken the same night the Lonely Tourist at the Lincoln Memorial was taken. It wasn’t as cold out once I moved here to take the picture, just being out of the wind helped a lot!

I took this picture of the Lincoln Memorial on a cold windy night. It’s part of my Lonely Tourist series of pictures.
Lincoln Memorial at Sunset
I took this picture of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC at sunset on a humid August night in 2008. The sun was setting and I was able to capture the brilliant blue and pink hue of the night sky. The colors didn’t last long in the sky, luckily I was able to get it before it got too dark. I have this picture printed hanging in my living room.
The full size image is of a higher resolution then most consumer cameras, it’s actually 55MP in size. Because of this the photo has more details then you’d normally see. The engraved state names around the top of the memorial can be easily read. Along the left side of the memorial a girl can be seen away from the tourists taking a picture.
The Lincoln Memorial was built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Construction started in 19212 and was completed in 1922. For tips on how to photograph the memorial see the page at PhotoTourism DC.
