I took these pictures during a run along Brown’s Island and through Downtown Richmond at sunset, dusk, and after dark — which was the goal. I wanted to see and photograph these areas as the day ended, having run through the area once before and noticed how nice it is.

These are pictures I took in December 2015 to see the National Christmas Tree in Washington, D.C. I was also able to see the National Menorah during the trip. Once the sun set, both looked spectacular.

In addition, decorative lights placed on several downtown buildings are lit. All the lights remain up for the duration of the Christmas season. I took several […]
