Today's image is from my recent trip to DC -- it's the Air Force Memorial near the Pentagon. I've been to DC a number of times over the past 10 years, and I never remember seeing this memorial, but it's one of the most striking in the area. It's made up of three arcs ascending into the sky at different heights and angles. I'll post a full shot of that one day; this image is just one of the arcs. It reminds me of the Gateway Arch in St. Louis because it's made of gleaming stainless steel. It's up on a hill about a mile from the Pentagon Metro stop, so it was a little bit of a hike. But I'm glad I went there. I read that it's designed after the famous jet trails of the Air Force Thunderbirds. Anyway, if you're ever in DC, it's worth a visit. There's a nice view down to the Washington Monument and the Mall there too.
