An incredible and peaceful scene watching the sun rise among the cherry blossoms. Hundreds of people enjoying the sight, yet the calm and quiet made you feel like you had it all to yourself. 3 shot HDR using Photomatix 4.2.
An early morning shot of Jefferson Memorial this morning, looking across the Tidal Basin. The 10 second exposure gave me a nice reflection on the water and some beautiful wispy clouds. Easily DC's most stunning monument.
The impressive statue of Thomas Jefferson stands tall as the stunning monument to his life and Presidency surrounds him, with the rising Sun shining through the columns to the East. Experiencing the monument with no one else around is an incredible experience, probably only possible in the frigid winter months.
