Iwo Jima Memorial in Snow

In early February of 2010, just as a snow storm was beginning, I drove to the US Marine Corps War Memorial, more commonly known at the "Iwo Jima Memorial" to photograph it in the snow.

Click on image to enlarge.

This image took about an hour to make because of having to patiently wait for the subtle breeze to billow the American flag out from the flag pole.  Patience is a requirement for an architectural photographer as waiting for the right light or wind condition is a must to capture an image at its very best.
