I went for a walk this morning before work, snapping photos of the National Mall, buildings, memorials, and museums under the modest 2-3 inches of snow that fell last night. My walk went from the the Robert Taft Memorial and the Capitol to the Smithsonian Metro station near the Castle. If I’d gotten up an hour earlier, I could have kept going to Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial, but I had to get to work.
The piece de resistance is a north-facing, 16+MP, 180° panorama of the National Mall from near the Smithsonian Castle, Washington Monument at left to Capitol at right: (WARNING: Clicking on this will take you to a large 10152×1648 px image, so it might be a bit of a wait, even on a broadband connection.)

(As an added bonus, on the Metro to work, I got to hear Asian Hymn Singing Guy sing “The First Noel.” Next time I see him, I will try to stand beside him and sing second voice.)
