I have heard there are some great holiday decorations at the Gaylord Hotel at National Harbor. This is indoors so weather will not be a problem.
The sun will be setting at 4:46 pm on Dec 3rd. I have class until 7pm but the group could meet earlier. Anyone up for that? If so what time?
New Info as of Nov. 30: The hotel does not allow tripods indoors. I have changed the time to 4pm to allow anyone that wants to get there before sunset to have a chance to get some nice images. The current forecast calls for Partly Cloudy skies and a high in the mid 40's. I would suggest that the group meet outside near the fountain ( link to map: http://g.co/maps/34j3n ) at the river's edge for an outdoor group shoot for the sunset. Individuals can either get there early to go inside and photograph the decorations or go in after the group shoot.
