Some great shots there Allan.

I love the pillars/columns in the first shot.

and the lake shot is nice, very calming.


cheers Eden

Thanks Eden
My favorite is the reflection pool.
It is a very busy location and difficult to get photo's without people in them.

I find the second shot really pleasing. I've never been, but for some reason I always imagine America being somehow perpetually on the crossover from Autumn to Winter (too many movies I think!), and this just captures that feel perfectly. :)

Thanks for your comments Tim
That photo was taken opposite the White House, only 50 meters away.
A scenic location with squirrels every where.
The white house was so disappointing, I did not post a photo of it.
24 hours later, after I left the White house was covered in 2 feet of snow. It was a shame , the day after we left Niagara Falls it snowed. The Day we left NYC it just started to snow.
The idea was to take the kids to see snow and we missed it everywhere by a day.

Regards
Allan
