Dramatic Storms in Washington DC and the Air Force Memorial

Dramatic weather can produce dramatic photography!

Over the past few days, we have had some intense weather here in Washington, D.C. Everything from black clouds, huge winds, tornados, and deluges. In many cases, these situations are disasterous to photograph. Water and electronics DO NOT mix! But in certain situations, bad weather can create unique photographic opportunities.

Last night, the dark clouds broke at sunset as a cold front set. This provided an amazing backdrop to the Air Force Memorial, in Arlington. The stainless steel spires reflected this amazing light.
