Washington Monument on a Winter Day

Took this from Independence Ave in DC, love how the tree provides a silhouette. No filters or color editing, this was how the sky looked at dusk. The lower half of the monument is a slightly different color from the top half. That's because construction was halted in 1854 for 25 years due to the Civil War, when construction resumed in 1878 they used marble from a different quarry.
