Getting back out at night

After a very long Winter this year, it seems that Spring is finally here. I have been waiting for Mother Nature to cooperate so that I could get back out and try out some new gear, mainly a brand-new MeFoto RoadTrip Travel Tripod.

I hit the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C., Saturday evening in the hopes of capturing some really nice night-time images. In doing so, I learned a valuable lesson that I will use in future trips – go out late enough so that the airplanes stop coming into Reagan National Airport and all the tourists have gone back to the hotels for the night.

I could not have asked for better weather though and I did manage to get some good images, that I will be sharing here in the near future.

Unfortunately, I injured my foot somehow earlier in the day so I had to cut short my plans of walking through several of our nation’s notable landmarks on the National Mall. I look forward to getting back out again in the near future and getting better – tourist-free – images of the Jefferson Memorial, as well as adding the World War II, Lincoln, Washington and Vietnam War memorials.
