Photography: Lincoln's Duck and Lincoln Sunset
Photography often reminds me of fishing in that some luck is typically involved. With Thursday evening's photo shoot, my good luck arrived in the form of a duck that posed motionless on the reflection of the Lincoln Memorial, giving me plenty of time to compose and shoot photos. Without the duck, I would have just another Lincoln Memorial photo.
Read below to check out the sunset at the Lincoln Memorial, a photo with more ducks, and a night scene at the WWII Memorial. Also, check out our full forecast for a look ahead to early next week.
The weather was great for a sunset shoot Thursday evening. We had calm winds, mild temperatures, and the sky was filled with high-level cirrus clouds. But despite the beautiful weather and sky conditions, the colors at sunset and dusk were just average. Above is a photo of the Lincoln at sunset with the cirrus clouds glowing yellow. Below is a photo of ducks swimming through blossom petals that had accumulated at one end of the Reflecting Pool. The last photo shows the WWII Memorial in lights. The luck involved with that shot was waiting for a gap in tourists, which is not always possible during the evening hours.
