Sunsets in the Washington, DC, area aren’t bold. But this particular evening, the clouds were just right. The reflected sunset gives a smooth gradient from pink to deep blue in the glass. It was bold enough to make you stop and look. Fortunately, this isn’t a city of tall buildings. No skyscrapers. Buildings like this are some of the taller ones around, so when you get in a good spot, you can see quite a bit of the sky.
The building is the Hepburn, a new luxury apartment building going up on the grounds of the Washington Hilton near the Dupont Circle area. The same Hilton where John Hinkley, JR., shot President Reagan. It’s a stop on the bus tours, though there’s not much about the area that’s picturesque. It’s a mile or so away from downtown DC.
