A visit to the Nation's capital wouldn't be complete without pausing at the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial. The names of 58,272 fallen and missing soldiers are etched into the reflective stone. Attempting to capture the sheer magnitude of this scene in a single frame is quite challenging. Rather than using a wide angle lens to show more, I opted for a telephoto lens to isolate a lone red rose. It's a solemn, but touching reminder of this tragic war.
