The Ducks Make This One of The Best Washington D.C. Sunrises in the Collection

Duck Sunrise

I had set myself up in front of the Reflecting Pool in anticipation of a spectacular sunrise when two pairs of ducks came over looking for a handout (tourists are always feeding them). At first I thought they ruined my photo but on further reflection I decided that they made it one of my best.

Since December of 2013 PJ Lifestyle has been collecting sunrise and sunset photos from contributors, readers, and Instagram. Now we’re going to begin an effort to organize the ongoing collection. New goals:

1. Collect a sunrise from every state in the union.

2. Collect a sunset from as many countries around the world as possible.

3. After getting all 50 states’ sunrises then switch to collecting their sunsets and begin the global sunrises collection.

Updated April 2014: 4. The extraordinary submissions of Mark Baird have inspired a new collection of photographs devoted specifically to our nation’s capital. We’re going to try and organize fantastic sunrise and sunset photos from all the different monuments and scenic views.
