Yes, Late Afternoon

A road enters the Monument grounds in the bottom left of the photo. That road was on the East side (ENE is a little more exact) providing vehicle access from 15th Street.

Late Afternoon

It is late in the afternoon, based upon the shadow. This view is looking south and the equipment room seen at the base of the Monument is on the west side. The sun is setting in west and casting the shadow to the east side.

Question!

Is it early in the morning or late in the afternoon? We have all we need to answer that don't we?
