Through the Pillars

Through the Pillars

The view from the north side of the Lincoln Memorial on a cold December night, punctuated by the near full moon. I set up outside the main hall of the Lincoln Memorial, wanting to capture the Washington Monument and U.S. Capitol in the background, but also to frame those icons within the massive pillars of the Lincoln Memorial.

Fighting against the sub-freezing temperatures, I waited for the lone cloud in the sky, looking more like an oblong UFO than a cloud, to make it's way between the pillars. Highlighted by the bright moon, and otherwise clear night, the cloud helps to add some uniqueness to an otherwise tried and true image.
