Great Light

The green house and upper garden wall at Mt Vernon 

Way back in 1977 or 1978, my Grandmother and I visited Mt Vernon.  Neither of us had been to Washington DC, she wanted to go, and I was willing to drive.  I remember the greenhouse and gardens above.  I bought a book in the gift shop in the end of the greenhouse building - it is likely still in the collection in the other house.

December is a pretty time to visit Mt Vernon.  The light is warm, highlighting the brick and red tile roofs.  The shadow and contrast accentuate the lines and shape.
