To me, this almost has the feel of a disaster waiting to happen.  With the eerily reddish light and people seemingly running toward the plane looking like it could ram right into the Washington monument.  This couldn’t happen.  Will there be survivors?  Hurry.  We need to help.  Almost, anyway.  The plane narrowly missed.  Everyone is safe.  Our capital city dodges another bullet.

I’m still not sure what the main feature is in this image.  The partial image of the general Grant memorial?  It does take up half the image.  The Washington Monument?  No, too small.  The sunset?  The guys in the lower right watching the setting sun?  It is, I think, more of a left/right split image.  The horses galloping forth out of the statue into the present scene of setting sun happing now.  Whatever it is, it was a great place to be on that DC evening. grant-washington-memorial-sunset-1

Actually, I was patiently waiting for the full moon rising in the east.  Talking to other photographers, I was happily informed that it’s fullness would be rising right over the capital building, which is not always the case.  So, we were setting our tripods up and sharing stories while waiting when I noticed the sun mixing with the wispy clouds to the west, next to the Washington Monument.  I politely excused myself, grabbed my camera and ran back across the street.  Nobody else seemed to care.  Sure don’t know why.

In DC, everywhere you turn seems to be just waiting to be admired.  I found it to be a showcase of iconic museum pieces.  A nations history through our relatively short existence on display to browse.  When the natural world shows up to complement our man-made structures… well, the results speak for themselves.  This was taken from the steps of the Lincoln memorial as the sun was rising.
