Description Minnesota State Capitol Wayne Moran 2009A client of mine asked me to go over to the Minnesota State Capitol building in St. Paul Minnesota and capture it for a project that they are doing. From my understanding of the project, the client was looking for mostly external shots and the images were to be in a horizontal layout. But if you are at all familiar with the capital building, you know that the really amazing stuff is on the inside... This view caught my attention and I had to capture it.This was shot at approximately 10:00 am and the weather outside was perfectly clear so the lighting coming in was strong and rich. The result is this wonderfully mysterious glow at the top of the stairway, which allows for seeing all the great details of this amazing structure. To see the exterior of the capitol, go to www.waynephotguy.com and search for state capitol.
