A Foggy Washington DC

Last weekend, my cousins from California and Australia were in town visting. I was playing tour guide, and took them to see all the touristy spots in DC.  However... that day was the dreariest and foggiest days ever.

The photo above, if you didn't notice, is a picture of the Washington Monument.  Not too scenic eh? I was feeling pretty bummed out showing my cousins all these barely visible monuments. It then got closer to dusk and we walked towards the Lincoln Memorial.

I've been by the Lincoln memorial numerous times.  On sunny days, cloudy days, and also in the evenings. This time though, I've never seen it so mystical and as beautiful as that night.  The glow of the memorial from the lights bouncing off the fog made the trip worthwhile.  It just made me remember... sometimes we need the dreariness and darkness so that we can appreciate the beauty of the light.
