Washington Monument

Washington Monument

I shot this one in February when the weather was warm and I was wandering the National Mall. Used my Sony A7R for this image along with what I consider the greatest landscape/travel lens the 24-240mm. For a lazy person like me that hates swapping out a lens it’s a one size fits all. The best part is you can go from wide to long and not really miss much. If you need to go wider you just back up…

5 From DC

5 From DC

This is the final of the series. This was taken in the middle of Virginia Avenue. I got a few strange looks from people walking by and cars as I setup my tripod in the middle of a traffic island. The Washington Monument is one of the tallest structures in Washington DC so it serves as a landmark if you are navigating. You can also see it from most vantage points that have a clear view. So if you are…

Memorial Shadows

Memorial Shadows

This was shot on the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC,. I had just finished taking some photos off the backside of the Lincoln Memorial and was walking around to go back down to the front. I saw the shadows off the columns with the Washington Memorial in the distance and just had to take the image. I got lucky in that no one was walking towards me. I was rushed because I had people coming behind me. In fact, there…

Sense Of Scale

Sense Of Scale

Shot this on Presidents Day Weekend. I was just wandering the National Mall with my Sony A7R and randomly taking picture. I was heading back to my car to pack up my gear and saw this and took a shot. This area is called the Constitution Gardens. It’s just a small pond usually loaded with ducks. There are a couple small islands that you can walk out onto. I have never ventured on them because they are usually crowded which…

The Memory Of Abraham Lincoln

The Memory Of Abraham Lincoln

Just one from when I went on a bit of a stroll on the National Mall in Washington, DC. I didn’t really think about it when I went to the National Mall on Presidents Day weekend that it would be crowded. Then again the Lincoln Memorial is always full of people unless it’s really late at night or early morning. You aren’t allowed to use a tripod inside the monument. I maybe forgot about that sign and setup for a…

Flare

Flare

In theory lens flare is something to be avoided but in this case I kept it. I liked how the light from the Sun flared out against my lens. I think I had a 28mm on the camera but not 100% sure since the EXIF isn’t recorded on manual focus glass. This was from the photowalk with Trey Ratcliff and we were on the National Mall in Washington, DC. That is why there are so many people are in front…

Monumental Reflection

Monumental Reflection

I took my new Sony A7R out for a stroll on the National Mall in Washington DC. I was walking and saw the shot below and stopped and snapped a few frames. I forget the name of the pond that this is but the big obelisk is the Washington Monument named after our first President, George Washington. It was under construction over the last few years due to damage from the very rare earthquake that happened here. So all the…
