Lincoln Lightning

This was a planned outing to go see the recently redone reflecting pool upgrades. I was partly hoping for a good sunset with pre-Isaac clouds. Instead, some storms bubbled up around sunset and continued to form into the early night. After taking refuge in the memorial I darted out into the lighter rain behind the storm and this was a "lucky" shot--first of 2 from this angle before I pointed the camera toward the Washington Monument and Capitol.
