Flying Lights December 7, 2011 Dmitrii This is a good spot to watch air planes landing into National Airport. “Ladies and gentlemen, please discontinue using electronic devices… Yes, this applies to you too…” Share this:Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email a link to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...

Interesting shot! Nice!
Yep, can’t see but there is actually huge aircraft there, just a line of lights
The light effects at night are great. I think Lincoln himself would enjoy this photo.
Stunning – it really captures the majesty of the building.
I love your photos. Grateful to have found your blog. Thanks for the recent visit to A Traveller’s Tale. Regards.
My wife and I were considering visiting Washington, DC this year. I haven’t checked out the local laws but I hear that since 9/11 it is illegal to photograph monuments like these, and those those caught have been fined, arrested or simply driven off. It’s hard to believe but stranger things have happened so I now have to wonder.
I’ve also heard of any photographer who merely looks pro by carrying a tripod or reasonably large camera bag can get hounded by police or bylaw officers insiting that permits be obtained in order to shoot these buildings. Is there any truth to this?
hmm, not sure, I have heard the same, but I never tried to take photos of federal buildings, or embasies or whatever. you can take as much photos as you like anywhere around National Mall or any other touristy area. there are hundreds of thousand of tourists come to the capital and all of them have some type of camera and all take pictures. as you can see i have dozen or so photos from DC area, all around famous landmarks or just around the city. never had a problem.
