Yesterday I was fortunate enough to go take pictures from the top of the Knights of Columbus Tower, of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, for the CUA Yearbook. The Basilica rising up 32 floors or 329 feet is considered the tallest building and the 2nd tallest structure in Washington, DC. The Washington Monument is the tallest structure, but can not be considered a building, as it doesn’t have successive floors that can be occupied.
The pictures did not come out as good as I would have liked, especially the far away shots, such as the Capital and the Washington Monument. It was very hazy the day I went up, but you take what you can get. I’ll be going up again next week to take pictures at sunset/nighttime, so hopefully I’ll be able to get some good shots then. I’ve included some of the pictures I took from the top, as well as some from the trip up and back down the tower.
