Taken Saturday night in front of the Washington, DC Capitol. I was standing in front of the pool of water taking photos of this statue and noticed the view of the Capitol through the angle of the horse.

Stunning color and detail, Gail -- I love that the statue is so large in the foreground, and yet the Capitol in the background is still prominent in the photo because of it's color and the surrounding color. Well done!
