The Lincoln Memorial Reflected at Dawn

The reflecting pool between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument shows why it deserves its name in this photo. The Lincoln Memorial catches the first rays of of the morning sun, which highlights the reflection.

It was on these steps, of course, that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King gave his "I have a dream" speech to a crowd that filled the area on both sides of the reflecting pool.

This glows with the import of all that this particular monument symbolizes. I think, if a monument could admire itself, it would be extremely pleased with this shot.

OK, your shots of Lincoln's place could not, not get any better, but what about my fav...Jefferson's. You must go back to capture it in the same grand way.

Thank you!!!
