'Golden Hour' on the National Mall

The US Capitol with the sun rising behind.
Someone suggested I get some pics in the 'Golden Hour' (aka 'Magic Hour) with some early morning or late evening sun.  I took these in my most photographed area, The National Mall, in Washington D.C.  

I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out, especially since they were all taken with a Blackberry!!!!!!

Morning sun rays through a construction zone on the National Mall. 
Air & Space Museum.
Any time I can get a nice shot of the sun, I'll do it...
Statue outside the Hirschorn Museum of Modern Art.
Another sculpture outside the Art Museum.
This Carousel is directly in front of the Smithsonian Castle.
Smithsonian Castle and the Washington Monument.  I had lost a good portion of the light behind the clouds by now.  I'll definitely be back to capture this with better light...
One last shot toward the Capitol.  Actually this was the first photo I took and the  photo at the beginning of the blog was the last.   I just wanted to mix it up a bit.....
