  • The sun sets over The Capital Wheel inside National Harbor, a few miles South of Washington DC- just outside of our Hotel. I captured this on the first day of our trip, Saturday, February 3rd at 5:15 pm- almost 45 minutes earlier than South Georgia/North Florida! I captured this using my Canon 6D with my 17-40mm wide angle lens. -Jay Blanton #nationalharbormd
