outstanding, love the golden glow of this reflection!
That "golden glow" is the result of Iowa gliding the Capital dome with real gold. The millions of dollars spent is almost exactly what the legislature took out of the Iowa support for higher education.
What a waste of education money that was. Great pic though!
Wow. Not sure of money well spent, but makes for a stunning picture.
Hmmmm--- The reflection twists it into a fantasy palace for some nutty prince... Love the shot!
A smile crept across my face when I read your reply to the first comment. That's not a golden halo then surrounding the Iowa 'Palace'.
Hearing the story kind of takes the glow off TFG, but it does indeed make a fab reflection.
Brilliaant reflection. Have a woderful weekend.
Very interesting, it is real gold? The picture ist phantastic!
The Iowa Capital dome is gilded in 23k gold leaf, almost half a million dollars of the stuff, or 25 pounds of gold. But the soft golden light is pure Iowa sunset.
A great golden reflection.
This is really neat! A wonderfully distorted reflection. I also like the squares and the golden light.
It is indeed a great image but disappointing to learn that the funding wasn't put to better use for the local population. Thanks for sharing.
Great reflection with the golden sunshine. I like it.
Love this shot!Liz @ Shortbread & Ginger
Beautiful reflection, Taken. Out of the entire Iowa state budget, the cost was probably lost in rounding, but it provides a measure of pride to the citizens. I am not one who thinks the government should be run out of huts. (Another point of view.)
what a beautiful golden reflection...Really great sunset...
