The Crescent Moon and a Glorious Sunset in DC

I had been planning to shoot the late evening, crescent moon for some time. Finally, conditions and situations aligned and I took myself down to DC to shoot the sunset and moonset at the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and World War II Memorial. It was definitely one of the nicer evenings I can remember being out, and I think I captured a few varied looks that add to my portfolio.
