I don’t have very many patriotic pictures but I wanted something that is identified with United States and as I was going through old pictures I found this one. Most of that batch came out bad because I shot them on the recently sold, but not forgotten Tamron 18-200 which takes buttery soft to a new level for describing lenses. This is one of the few images that came out sharp relatively speaking. I really like how the sunlight illuminated the Capitol and you have the American flag in the background. I can attest that the sky was that color and I didn’t not add a gradient to make it that blue. So sometimes you just get lucky.
So happy 4th of July!
