7:32 PM Glare begins at about the left field foul pole.
A sharp-eyed reader caught me trying to make the best of a bad situation with my SP-570UZ on Sunday afternoon
The former Ford manufacturing plant (now Ford Centre).
Special guests in the trees!
Site plan for the new Nationals ballpark, with the size of the Rapid Park site overlaid
I believe that the truck is parked in one of the curb cutouts which are being installed to facilitate ticket sales and traffic calming.
This is the trapezoid (for lack of a better name) in right center. Be sure to notice section of seats just below the pavilion and above the fence (which I hadn't noticed before). For those who are interested, what looks like an old-style scoreboard is in fact a high-def video board which will look, at times, like an old-fashioned scoreboard.
Loading dock -- already in use!
Home Plate Terrace -- really great seats; maybe my personal, budget-based favorite

Bike parking available along Second Avenue
The ballpark development area expanded by 1000 feet in each direction
The french fry lights were on!
Left to right: Opat, Oliva, Dave St. Peter, Melvin Tennant (Meet Minneapolis), Jerry Bell, Rybak
Flowers and Hall-of-Fame plaques. Very nice.

This looks south and shows the track configuration for Northstar. The platform shown is just a placeholder. To the best of my knowledge, concept drawings for this platform have not been released. Keep in mind, this is NOT part of the ballpark project. It is completely separate.
