At the east side of the Abraham Lincoln Memorial during the blue hour on a late spring evening . Taken at ISO 100, F/14, 2 sec, with a Canon EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 II USM Lens.

There are countless ways to photograph the memorial, but what made me took this photo was the color of the background and the waxing crescent moon. It is really beautiful, so I quickly set up my camera and tripod and took this photo. I also converted it to black and white which you can see when you click on this link.

Please refer to the map below to see the exact location where i took the photo above.
