Photographer's Note

I decided to take a break and post a few recent shots from the Cherry Blossom festival in Washington, DC. The water is the Reflection Pond on the National Mall and the monument is the new World War II memorial. The helicopter is the President's personal helicopter. When he is in it it's referred to as Marine One. The primary presidential helicopter is the Sikorsky VH-3D (Sea King). Often times it's in use by someone else high ranking or it might be empty just to throw the bad guys off. You can tell by the light that it was at sunset when I took this. It was taken on a very nice day last Thursday around 6:30. If you click on the map link you will see how the monument in front of us was still under construction when the satellite flew over.

I almost forgot to mention this is my first post with my newly acquired lens, the Nikkor 18-200 with VR. It seems very nice but at this focal length it's hardly a challenge for this thing.
