Front Row Seat for Sunrise

Every morning, President Abraham Lincoln (or at least his statue) gets a front row seat for watching the sun rise over the Reflecting Pool. From his vantage point, it is quite a view.

Lincoln's position at the base of the National Mall also provides photographers with an opportunity to watch the sunrise light wash over the seated Lincoln as well.

While strange to turn your back to the rising sun, photographing Lincoln during this moment is totally worth it. The natural light softens Lincoln's white marble, making him look more life-like and human.
