Dawn on the Potomac

Dawn on the MonumentsDawn on the MonumentsPurple clouds at dawn over the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, Arlington Memorial Bridge, and the Potomac River.

In March, I love to shoot the monuments in Washington, D.C. The vernal equinox is in March, so the sun rises directly in the east and sets directly in the west. The monuments also happen to be laid out mostly in a line from east to west. Here are two photos, one shortly before sunrise and one at sunrise, featuring the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, and Arlington Memorial Bridge.

While I was out having fun shooting the sunrise, I noticed lots of robins out looking for worms. They sure look well fed!
