Sunrise Mist of Reflecting Pool

This is the capture of a magical moment. My husband took this photo with his zoom while focusing on capturing the glow of the sunrise streaming through the trees illuminating the mist on the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial. The bench and street light added to the atmosphere, and then a man walked by and blew a puff of smoke into a streak of sunlight.

This is my favorite photo that Dave took on his sunrise walk during our recent visit to Washington, D.C. He had to get back to our hotel by 8:00 a.m. for some professional meetings, but I wonder what was more productive, his photo walk or his meetings. I will show a few more days of photos from this little field trip to our nation's capitol.

Check out photos of Murano, Italy at our travel photo site at Viva la Voyage!
