After taking many shots of the washington monument, I started walking away from it towards the Vietnam War Memorial. I was not happy with most of the shots that I'd got. Well, you can only do so much in the middle of a bright sunny afternoon.
As I was walking, I just happened to look back at the monument and saw this dramatic scene. Needless to say, quickly fired a couple of shots before the clouds completely covered the monument. Happy to have turned around and witness this beautiful play of light!
