Twilight at the Mall
January 5, 2010
Here are two photos I found on my Lightroom Library, featuring some of the Great Landmarks in Washington DC specifically The Mall. Both photos were taken on April 26, 2009. Allow me to briefly tell you something about The Mall, it refers to the area between the Lincoln Memorial and The Capitol, with the Washington Monument and World War II Memorial on the center. The National Mall or The Mall receives approximately 24 million visitors each year.
Going back on the photos the first one on the left you can see three Monuments, the World War II Memorial on the foregound, The Washington Monument also known by DC residents as the Pencil and on the very end is the Dome of The Capitol.
Now if you take a look at the other photo on the right you will see the World War II Memorial and The Monument with its reflection on the pool of the Lincoln Memorial. Both photos were taken from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, the first was taken around 8:31pm and the second was taken at 9:54pm.
