Memorial Day at Arlington / by Mark Andre

Once a year Arlington National Cemetery Public Affairs opens up the cemetery for a small group of photographers to witness the sunrise. I chose to be at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It wasn't the most spectacular sunrise, but the sky took on this amazing pink tone that briefly bathed everything in a pink glow.

This scared space is special during normal hours, but to be there and witness the Changing of the Guard ceremony with the peace and serenity of sunrise is pretty amazing.
