The last August sunrise, 2010
The sky was clear as I walked by the Lincoln Memorial during the early morning of August 31 . The summer haze, which is often visible along the horizon during August, was absent. The air temperature was 71 degrees, not quite cool, but it felt very pleasant. A light breeze rippled the surface of the water on the Reflecting Pool. The temperature would later hit 96 degrees at National Airport at 3PM, but during the pre-dawn hour there was no sign of the day's impending heat.
I set up two cameras, a video camera and a DSLR camera, at the edge of the Reflecting Pool and waited for the sunrise. It would not be long before these sunrise shoots would be chilly, or down right cold, as fall approaches. But, for August 31, the weather was ideal.
