Eclipsed by the Greenery

Washington, D.C.

My husband, our dog and I stopped by to see the National Christmas Tree tonight on our way home from grocery shopping. I can't begin to tell you how cold it was (especially without any mittens since this was unplanned) and how utterly frustrating it was with a tripod that kept slipping during the exposure (the last time I ever use it, but it was all I had in the car). But I was pleased to be able to capture the partially hidden White House in the distance; last year I got the Washington Monument but couldn't see the White House from up close to the tree. This time it was so cold, I didn't even want to take the time to walk to the tree :-).
