Photographed November 9, 2013

Notes: In this photo, the Washington Monument is lit with the regular lighting that normally illuminates the structure at night. The scaffolding was backlit from July 8 through November 3, 2013. This photo was taken on the fifth night following the restoration of the regular lighting, but several days before the process of removing the scaffolding began.
