Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool in DC

When people think of DC they are sure to think about the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool on the National Mall.

This long, thin, and shallow pool running between the Lincoln Memorial and the WWII Memorial is hard to miss if you make a visit to DC.

From Martin Luther King’s Iconic “I Have a Dream” speech to Forrest Gump reuniting with Jenny in the water the reflecting pool has seen many historical & cultural events.

There is nothing like viewing a great sunset at the reflecting pool, it creates the perfect framing for many of DC’s monuments.

I’ve travelled to the reflecting pool countless times, here are some of my favorite photos from sunrise to sunset.
