Texas State Capital

I took this 5-exposure HDR image last year on my way through Austin Texas.  I got to the campus before sunrise to capture the facility in the early morning light.  To my surprise, I was about the 12th photographer to arrive.   Plus there were hundreds of joggers at that time of day…..

About the Capital Building….  It was completed in 1888 and is located in downtown Austin.  It holds the offices/chambers of the Texas Legislature and the Governor’s office.  It was built from 1882 to 1888 and is the fourth building to hold the title of Texas State Capital.  In 1993, they completed a $75 million underground extension, which you can see in the foreground of the photo.
