Looking at the Sky - Late Summer at the LOB


Looking at the Sky is a wonderful meme, and I enjoy scouting out appropriate sky views when I am able.

And since I was at the CT State Legislative Office Building in Hartford on Tuesday, I was able to see the heavens around the L.O.B. and the 

Capitol.

The last time I took pictures around here it was cold 30ºF (-1ºC). Tuesday it was a beautiful 76ºF (24ºC) with fair-weather clouds around.

The Capitol looks impressive, as always, under its gold 
dome.





Not all are from the outside: the glass roof allows the blue and white filter nicely for those in the marble clad lobby

The door to the walkway between the LOB and Capitol sits under this rotunda. As before, the natural light and skies wash over this space...This was a nice day to sit in on the Long Term Planning Committee meeting. Not to participate, but observe. After the meeting, a photo shoot at the LOB and Capitol. Happily, I am glad I thought to have fresh batteries and an empty memory card in the Canon...

I'm glad you were prepared for a photo session as these are lovely photos! I particularly like the one of the entry way. This looks like it could be an interesting place to catch photos of not so pleasant skies while staying warm and dry.

The "ell-oh-bee" is indeed an impressive building, especially under such gorgeous skies. And you took the photo from a great angle, by the way, making the "ell-oh-bee"'s dome the focal point...at least for me. Well done!

Oh look at those fluffy clouds! They're so beautiful. Great capture of the sky and the building.

Oh - I love that gold colored dome against all that blue sky! Beautiful photos!

We sure do have a beautiful capitol building here in Connecticut, don't we? And those are some beautiful clouds to go along with it, Ralph!

My picture this week is the view you get when you come around the last corner on Highway 50 in the Sierra Nevadas approaching Lake Tahoe - there's a small turnout there that you risk life and limb getting back on the road from if it's a busy day!

Lovely pictures! That sky is so beautiful, and I really enjoyed seeing the LOB against it.
