Airport Photography



A full 360 degree panoramic from atop the roof of DCA's (Ronald Reagan National Airport) ATCT. The day was overcast, and quite frankly I'm surprised I got anything out of the sky. Haze is very evident, and visibility was only about 10 miles. DCA's ATCT is only 201 feet tall, compared to IAD's 320 feet. The Washington Monument is visible on the far left-hand side of the image, with the Smithsonian Castle and United States Capital Building not too far to its right. On the far right-hand side of the image, the Air Force Memorial is visible sticking up above the treeline and apartment buildings.


This image is scaled down to 30,000px wide, from an original 486 megapixel, 54,807px, 5.6GB image. This is due to JPEGs having a 30,000 pixel size limit.


YOU MUST BE MY "FRIEND" TO VIEW 100% SIZE ON FLICKR. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A LOOK, PLEASE SEND ME A NOTE AND I'LL ADD YOU. This is due to people in the past ripping off my images, and is also the reason I watermark my work; unfortunate, but true. All images are copyrighted, All Rights Reserved.
