Walking around Washington, DC I was overwhelmed by how imposing the buildings of our nations capital are.  How can you not be impressed with the stature of our nation as you make the walk along the Mall to the capital building?

This second shot was taken later in the day.  The gathering clouds hinted at a coming storm.  An omen for America?

 I was also taken by the cloudy skies above the capital building itself.  Are they a warning of things to come?
