Something a little different

In photography (as in most things) it is interesting to try something a little different.  I have only recently experimented with panoramic photos but haven't shown any of them.  Here is the first one that I was happy with.  

This photo was taken about 5 AM on the National Mall in Washington DC.  The sun is just beginning to think about coming up.  In this photo I have combined 2 photos by merging them in Lightroom.

I always like to publish color photos.  On this same morning I photographed the Lincoln Memorial.  These days you need to be in this location at least 1 hour before sunrise as many joggers and walkers are on the steps for sunrise.  Because I was there so early, the color did not add much to the photo so I make a black and white out of it.
