Lincoln Monument 7/4/07

On my family's vacation to Washington D.C., the highlight of the trip was getting to see the huge fireworks show that is launched from the Main Mall. We were sitting about 100 yards down the hill from the Washington Monument (overlooking the WWII Monument and the Reflecting Pool). This picture was taken just before dusk. At the time, I didn't know how to adjust f-stop or shutter speed, so the picture is a little grainy. Evenso, it's cool how the mass of humanity gathered on the steps of the Lincoln Monument to watch the fireworks. We had a really good day.
