Finally got a chance to photograph Washington DC

I have wanted to photograph Washington DC for a couple of years now and I finally had a chance to do so. The weather was not ideal for shooting big city scapes (it was very overcast with some light rain), but made for some cool close up shots and night photography. Hey, if the weather is not ideal, find the ideal shots for the current conditions.

The following picture is one of my favorites from this short trip. This is a photo taken at the Korean War Memorial. The weather was really misty which added to the scene. I set up my camera on a tripod, left the shutter open for 30 seconds and walked in front of each statue and fired my flash to "light paint" each of them.
