Thomas Jefferson Memorial & Washington Monument Winter Morning

606 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Thomas Jefferson Memorial, National Mall, Washington, D.C.

The Thomas Jefferson Memorial on the National Mall is located at the southern end of the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C. This memorial is dedicated to Thomas Jefferson, an integral American Founding Father, one of the main writers of the Declaration of Independence, member of the Continental Congress and third president of the United States. The neoclassical architecture commonplace in Washington, D.C. is evident in this memorial with its circular marble steps, ionic order columns and shallow dome. It is open to the elements and managed by the National Mall and Memorial Parks division of the National Park Service.

The pediment, sculpted by Adolph Alexander Weinman, depicts the “Committee of Five” who drafted and presented to Congress, the delegates of the Thirteen Colonies, what would become America’s Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776. The Committee of Five included Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Robert Livingston.

The Washington Monument is among the most well-known landmarks of Washington, D.C. The obelisk dedicated to the first president of the United States stands over 500 feet tall. Construction began in 1848 and didn’t finished for nearly 40 years due to lack of funding and the American Civil War. Made of marble, granite and bluestone gneiss; one can see the different shades in color of the stone between the bottom and top sections of the monument as the quarry stone couldn’t be matched after a two-decade long gap in construction. Fifty flags surround the base of the structure, symbolizing the fifty states of the Union.

I shot this high-resolution photo of the Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Monument on a frigid winter morning by stitching fifty-four photos together (three rows of eighteen images). Most times when shooting these images, one would go in order, ie start at the top left and go row by row but in this particular image I was a bit all over the place. A busload of students was dropped off just as I was starting to take the series so I went back in forth between rows and positions to get the frames with the Jefferson Memorial without people.

Washington, D.C. has no shortage of great areas to walk around and explore. Certain times of year like this winter morning with the frozen Tidal Basin, I shot a series of the interior with not a soul in sight but a few minutes later there were forty children exploring the monument. The public space is truly a place for all; I’d recommend it for anyone wanting a beautiful place to see some history of the United States and to pass the time and reflect.

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
