Freedom's Run
Freedom's Run
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!

Congratulations on your POTD Gail. I went to American University in DC from 1983 to 1988 and loved my time there. I didn't even own a camera back then. What a great place to photograph. This photo captures some of the feeling of that city.........the glory of it!
