Sunset over the Anacostia River, Washington DC

This photograph of the sunset over the nation's capital was taken from a boat on the Anacostia River. The Anacostia was formerly an esteemed waterbody, but has garnered a reputation as a highly polluted and unusable river. Local organizations and individuals are working to restore the Anacostia and revive it as a resource for the community. The Anacostia is on its way to regaining its status as a place where people in the DMV can connect with nature, and enjoy more and more sights like this one.
