What a LOVELY fountain ... all the more beautiful with lights at night. I'm sharing a watery photo my sister took in South Bend, Washington at Small Reflections ;--)

Beautiful photo of the WWII Memorial and a lovely time of the day to capture the lights on the fountain. I have yet to get there but hope to rectify that situation soon. In the meantime I have really enjoyed this incredible shot. Thanks Carletta.

Your photo is wonderful, Carletta. This is a beautiful memorial. It make us pause and reflect on those who have served our country.

This looks delightful. I've been in Wash. DC in July, and with that humidity I can understand why people are sitting with their feet in the water. A pretty evening capture.

It's a beautiful memorial for one of many historical events which should not have had to be.
The twilight evokes sadness, the lighted fountains remind me of bombs and bullets. And the people can only stand and watch.

The beautiful fountain is lightened so well.

Beautiful composition. You know, I spent lots of time on the "mall" when I lived in VA, visiting The Wall, etc, but don't think I have been here. Tara and I plan on a trip to Wash DC in the fall.
