With it being summer the area on the National Mall is normally filled with people jogging, walking, biking, or playing sports in the afternoon – at least the areas just in front of the museums and art galleries.  But if you just cross the street you’ll find a nice sea of green to capture the scaffolding at sunset.

On August 23rd, 2011, the Washington DC area was hit with a magnitude 5.8 earthquake (Washington Post article about the earthquake along with a Huffington Post article about the earthquake).  Needless to say, we aren’t used to earthquakes in Washington DC!  Most offices and companies sent people home afterwards, wanting to make sure the structure of the office buildings were ok for employees to return to work.

I took this picture of the Rosslyn skyline after the sun was setting and a storm had moved through the area.  The storm really gave a lot of drama to the clouds in the sky.  I was sitting along the Potomac River on the DC shoreline, just at the bottom of Georgetown where the waterfront is at.

Rosslyn sits directly across the Potomac River from Washington, DC in Virginia.  This image is actually a stitched HDR image.  It’s made up of 90 images total, each stitch being 3 images of different exposure.

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.

Canon 40D
Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Zoom Lens
