Barack Obama's Inauguration, January 20, 2009

Looking from the Lincoln Memorial towards the Capitol Building

From the top steps of the Lincoln Memorial you had a good view of the Washington Monument and the Capitol dome, a mile and a half away. This area wasn't hugely crowded yet, but before the swearing in, the space between the WWII memorial and the Washington Monument completely filled up. At the front is the frozen reflecting pool, then the World War II memorial. You can see two jumbotrons just on the other side of it.
