The Obelisk, also known as the Washington Monument, is a four-sided pillar which tapers as it rises with the edges meeting at the topmost tip. It is made up of marble, granite and gneiss and is considered as the world’s tallest stone structure.

Photo of the Day – Washington

The Washington Monument is an obelisk built to honor the first American president, George Washington. This photo was taken from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. I arrived early at the Lincoln Memorial. It was still dark and a bit chilly. When the first few lights appeared on the horizon, I took photos of the beauty in front of me.
