We thought we’d secured a great view from the top steps of the Supreme Court, but the weather kept the fireworks so low that nothing was visible. So we walked to the north side of the Capitol, and were barely able to see the fireworks against the Washington Monument. These images have the bright light from the Capitol concert on the top, and also show the American flag at the Capitol, and are taken through the rain spots on the lens.
Union Station brings out its huge flags for several holidays. This photo is taken right after the fireworks, as we went back to the Union Station Metro.
