Washington, D.C. Skyline at the 2022 Tree Lighting
This photograph of the Washington, D.C. skyline was taken by Matthew D'Agostino for the White House Historical Association on November 30, 2022 at the National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony and concert. A flock of birds is captured in this photograph with the roof of a building, likely DAR Constitution Hall, in the foreground. The 2022 tree lighting took place on The Ellipse and was the second presided over by President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden. They were joined in the festive celebration by host LL Cool J and performances by Shania Twain, Yolanda Adams, The Estefans, Andy Grammer, Ariana DeBose, Joss Stone, and the United States Marine Band.
