Water scenes by the Potomac and the Monuments







Washington DC is such a special place filled with historic sites and amazing vistas. The Potomac River cuts through the heart of the historic center and borders many of the famous monuments.

It creates a magical appeal and destination from the intense summer heat and draws out the crowds to see the lit up monuments and a time to enjoy the sunsets and the cool nights. I enjoyed visiting these special places recently and during the sunset when the skies are painted with beautiful blues and purples.






The lit up interior of the Jefferson Monument is magical at night, a majestic statue of Jefferson commands immediate awe and respect while you read his quotes and other words of inspiration.
