Ice crystals on the grass and leaves near the river's edge.
These shells, invaders from Asia, are not supposed to be in the Potomac River. They wash up every time it floods.
The Potomac River was very muddy and fast as a result of all the rain we got the day before...
...and the park (which officially closed at two) was nearly deserted by late afternoon.

The bell at the Riggs Bank building against the clouds.
And here, facing east at twilight, the moon over a church. Not a great photo but it seemed appropriate for Christmas Eve.
