Here's another site from the river cruise of DC last April. This time it's the National War College, located on Ft. McNair along the Washington Canal. I guess you're not really looking at the college, you're looking at Roosevelt Hall, which houses the college. You can see the US Capitol to the left of the building, but it's really far away. The telephoto lens makes it look a lot closer than it really is, plus it sits on a bit of a hill (yes, there really is a Capitol hill), so it tends to tower over everything for miles around. If you hope to have a long and fruitful career in the military, you'll probably wind up here for a while.
