Washington (mild) winter day

Went down to Washington today. We got lots of cold rain yesterday, but today was gloriously sunny, if a little cold.

My first photo is the Washington Monument looking good in the winter sun. Next is a pond cypress. The “knees” look like little animals trying to climb up. Last is a big oak tree near Dept of Agriculture. It looks stark w/o the leaves, but you can more easily see the beauty of the old wood.
