While spending a few weeks in the nation’s capital I decided to go visit a few of the famous sites and get some photos at night. You often see pictures of these famous monuments in the day, but I would argue that they are most beautiful after dark.
You also have the added benefit that there is almost no one around if you go after 10pm, especially on a weekday. So, here they are for your viewing amusement.
The Washington Monument:
The Jefferson Memorial:
The Library of Congress:
Entrance to Arlington National Cemetery:
If people seem to find these interesting I’ll go back and take photos of more of the monuments. But it’ll take quite a few comments from interested people to get me to dedicated many more hours to driving around DC after dark…
