I looked at the temperature on my phone and saw that it was only 8 degrees fahrenheit. I thought it might be better to remain in bed but forced myself out. My goal was to photograph the Memorial Bridge in Washington DC at sunrise and I headed out to try and capture it.
I had no trouble finding parking and headed towards the bridge but got distracted on my way. The sun was beginning to wake-up but I thought I had time for just one photo. I set-up my tripod and focused in on the Washington Monument.
I then began to wonder what it would look like on the other side of the snow covered reflecting pond. The sun would soon appear and I knew I had to go fast during these golden moments in the pre-dawn morning.
I was happy that I checked out both side. I started to take down the tripod and head for the bridge but then remembered to turn around and see what was behind me.
Finally a race to the bridge.
I'm happy I got out as we are now having another snow storm.
