The Washington Monument to the Nth

Whenever I’m in DC for business or pleasure, I always like to visit the National Mall and see if I can get some shots in.  Among my favorites is the Washington Monument, where I try to take at least one image, often high contrast, usually backlit, and frequently with one flag or more with it.  The image above is an interesting shot because it looks like I used a strobe to provide some fill on the flag, but it’s actually backlighting from the sun providing that.

Below are many other images of the Washington Monument I’ve taken over the years…
