While it’s not a real castle, it’s the closest thing to a castle that’s in Washington DC!
This has been a photograph that I’ve had in my mind for over a year to take. I knew that photographing the Iwo Jima Memorial when the sky is fire red would make a good photograph. Luckily this morning everything came together!
I took this photograph, Night Scaffolding, last night at the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial. Even though it was a Sunday night and it was 9:30PM, there were still lots of tourists walking around in the area!
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.
Along Skyline Drive are many hiking trails that you can park and enjoy a trip through nature. Some of the trails follow streams that have waterfalls on them. Most of the waterfalls are away from the drive, so takes a little hiking to get there. But there are some that are close to the road, like Naked Creek Falls.
If the are lucky and the air is very still, you can get a nice reflection of the Jefferson Memorial in the Tidal Basin.
A couple of weeks ago I went out to Skyline Drive again to take pictures. Got there in time to capture a nice pink sunrise.
I took this photograph of the Tidal Basin earlier this week in the afternoon – one of the few times we had some nice sunshine and blue sky!
