A Room with a View (Blue Room, White House)

© 2018 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

This was one of my favorite views on a recent visit to the White House in Washington, D.C. The “Blue Room” is one of the oval salons in the White House, and has a fabulous view over the South Lawn towards both the Washington and Jefferson Monuments. I bracketed exposures here to give you a clear view of both the room interior and the scene beyond despite the bright light coming through the window. Zeiss was kind enough to loan me a couple of the Batis lenses – including the 18mm f/2.8 used here – for this trip.
