Washington Monument

The Washington Monument on a gorgeous day.

I was visiting in DC this past week. My plan was to get to the Washington Monument early on a weekday and beat the crowds waiting to go up the iconic tower. As a walked down from Capitol Hill I watched as a gazillion tour buses pull up and unload countless hordes of tourists. I was already too late - the lines were extended...

No matter - the day was clear and the lighting perfect. I circled the monument and captured a number of interesting views...
