Sunset at the Lit Washington Monument

Tonight, I hosted another Introduction to Landscape and Nature Photography class in Washington, D.C. This time, at the newly lit Washington Monument.

The weather was perfect — mid 70s and high clouds. Everything looked perfect for a brilliant sunset. As the sun dipped below the horizon, the color stayed a muted blue. Right when I thought all hope was lost, the entire sky was engulfed in an orange pink. Despite a few construction artifacts, the view to the monument was very nice and complemented by the radiant color:
