One of the reasons I liked D.C. as a big city so much is there is so much sky. Since no building can be taller than the highest point on the Capitol, the town is built "out" and not "up" like other cities, i.e., New York with its skyscrapers.
This makes D.C. much more full of light, and you can actually see the sky and clouds. It just makes it nice.
But if you think seeing the clouds there is cool, check out how close the clouds are here. Looks like you could actually touch them...I've always loved that.
