The Capitol at Dawn

I was in Washington, D.C. about 10 days ago and thought it would be worthwhile to get some photos of the monuments at sunrise.

It was 30 degrees outside, so I decided that the best way to get sunrise photos would be to send my husband, Dave of Costa Rica Daily Photo out to take some photos in the cold while I stayed warm and slept in our hotel room.

Here is a photo that he took of the U.S. Capitol building from the grounds or the Washington Monument. I like how you can see the glow from the sunrise through the windows in the dome. You can also see a plane.

I will show some more of his Washington photos during the next week. Although all of the monuments are familiar to everyone, Dave tried to get some special shots in the sweet light of dawn. The photos really turned out fabulous so I thought I would share them for the next week.

We have travel photos of Murano, Italy on our travel site Viva la Voyage!

You are a smart woman; I admire the way you finessed the photo! Yes, the monuments are quite remarkable in DC.

A beautiful dawn indeed, and a clever wife.

Delagating the work is always a good thing. Especially for such results.

I like to see the Capitol when no one is there. We all would be better off if they would just stay away. D.C is a wonderful city. I used to live there and still miss it.

So nobody bothered to stop and question the guy in the Scooby Doo pajamas carrying a tripod? ;-)

Actually, this is a great shot. Love the color of the sky. Way to go Dave!

Your series on your Washington trip are truly spectacular photos! I can see that it's worth getting up early to take some sunrise shots - wow!
