Here is a sunrise photo with the silhouette of famous buildings with ducks swimming in the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial.
The buildings outlined against the golden sunrise are, from left to right, the Capitol Dome, the Washington Monument, the rotunda of the Library of Congress, and the "castle" of the headquarters of the Smithsonian Institution on the Mall.
My husband, who took these photos, has a special fondness for Washington, D.C. He was born there and he returned to Washington for his undergraduate and two post-graduate degrees, and he worked for several Members of Congress for 12 years, more than 25 years ago. I hope you agree that I had a good idea to "suggest" to him that he go out very early on a crisp, cold November morning to take sunrise photos during our recent trip to Washington.
Today is Sunday so that means new travel photos. Check out photos of the unique Mayan pyramid at Ek Balam in Yucatan, Mexico at Viva la Voyage!
