[Daily Photo] Washington Monument

Share this :
I was in Washington DC with my wife who had a conference there. This photo is the famous Washington Monument. There are so many amazing things to see in DC, so I could only visit the Washington Monument just one time. Luckily the weather is good. The clouds looks so dramatic. (I guess that is due to the airplanes which fly across the sky about every 5 minutes in the daytime.) Notice the color of the upper part of the monument is different from the lower part. The reason is the construction of the monument was suspended due to war (American Civil War). When the construction resumed, the same color marble was not available.
