The Washington Monument Through the Trees

 

The Washington Monument

 

 

 

Accompanied by good friends last night, Jan and I sloshed into the city late, to photograph the flood-lit monuments.

The clouds hung low and the air was mist, reflecting browny/red gold earthward.

  Soaring alone, the Washington Monument centers a large unimpeded expanse in most published photographs...and this it does.

Over-seeing the affairs of state and shadowing the White House.

The mall vista is straight and expansive from  Lincoln's Place,   toes in the Potomac, to the sparkling steps of the US Capitol building....1.9 miles stepping away.

The Washington Monument anchors the show.

  Yet trees do stand sentry, guarding both sides of the spacious mall pathways.

Sheltered under these beauties, in front of the National Museum of American History on the mall side,  I photographed Washington in the elbow of Madison and Constitution avenues.

  Wing in on  Google Earth darlin' and you may gaze down upon the very tree, that covered me last night.

After paying a courtesy call on the president, we suggest attending  museums in daylight and dancing with monuments when the sun leaves town.

Perfectly lit, the memorials  were still entertaining friends at 11 PM last evening.

The Park police gently prodded the festive crowds along around 11:30, so that Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln could get some rest.

Hey...come tarry awhile.

We'll leave the lights on for you.
