  2. Holy cow - those shots are beautiful! Especially the last one. Very cool presentation idea that the state came up with.

  3. Thanks Bumbles! The first shot is my eldest daughter's, the other two are mine.

    Missie and Bumbles: The State House often uses colored lights on the dome for special events. It's red and/or green around the holidays and pink for Breast Cancer Awareness in October. I'm sure they do other colors too, but I'd never seen this before.
