I saw this at night, and believe that it was probably more beautiful at that time than during the day. The fountains are lit up by light, light shines on each individual column representing each state, and the Washington Monument shines in the distance. In this case, the Washington Monument was covered in scaffolding, but it is still a beautiful sight from the WWII monument. I wish I could have had more time to appreciate the monument, but the site was suddenly swarmed by loud middle-schoolers who blocked our way.
