This time of year trying to shoot outside in the middle of the afternoon is quite a chore. Especially this year. Right now in Central Texas, we are having record-breaking heat as well as a record-breaking drought. It's brutal! Shooting outdoors in this stuff is not fun. However, one of the places for a nice reprieve is old faithful, the Texas Capitol. It's very photographer friendly there and there's plenty to shoot. Not to mention, it's air conditioned! Sometimes I feel like I've shot too much there, but I usually can find a new angle on something to try or a new subject. I did try a vertorama that Farbspiel does quite a bit on his HDR Cookbook site quite often. I tried that in the main rotunda a couple of posts ago. So, to go along with that, I decide to post a new angle of the underground rotunda, as it's called, which is located on the north side of the complex. It's part of the Capitol Extension which has a nice atrium, gift shops and a cafeteria among other things. It's very nice.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the picture.
