Heading to DC; please advise
Jun 22, 2012

I'm going to Washington, DC next week and will be there through Independence Day. I've never been to DC; it looks a bit overwhelming with possibilities. How to sort?

I'll be armed with my first Nikon, a D800E. I have a Nikon 24-70mm and a Nikon 70-200mm + TC20Eiii. I'm renting a Nikon 14-24mm, since Zeiss is taking their time with the 15mm-f/2.8.

What to see? What to shoot? When to shoot? What to avoid (getting to the top of the Washington Monument is already on that list).

Thoughts on shooting DC's fireworks on the Fourth of July?

What keepers have you taken in DC?

I posted similar at Landscape & Travel, but things are kinda sleepy over there.
