Each equinox, the sun rises right up East Capitol Street here on Capitol Hill, just like at Stonehenge. It's become something of a tradition for me to get up and see if I can catch it. This photo was taken from a little island in the middle of the street where the street splits to go around Lincoln Park. This year, the Equinox was on a Saturday, so there is very little traffic at sunrise. On a weekday, there would be a steady stream of commuters pouring in.
Taken with my iPhone, using Camera 360. I've been working a lot with the cartoon filters, and layering various effects. This app has been steadily improving, and has considerable control now.
