Greetings Billy, Thanks for visiting the State Capital building of Colorado. We were taking pictures of the City and County building of Denver for the Christmas lights and thought I should shoot the capital too. I am glad I did. When I was younger we used to ride our bicycles down to the capital and go up the stairs to the dome and top of the rotunda. It was great fun as a young teenager. Glad you like it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

A very lovely view of the capital building, Rich.

This is more to my taste: handsome building, handsome photo.

Cheers, Marilyn

Right, Marilyn, this one for me is too much Disneyland style.

Richard, nowadays probably it's not that easy anymore to go up the stairs to the dome, I guess.

Greetings Billy, YBMW, Marilyn, SarpBKS, Margherita, and Polytropos, Thanks for visiting the Capital of Colorado and commenting. Happy New Year.

Billy - you are welcome, thanks for the interest.

YBMW - It was a beautiful evening and the capital beckoned to have its picture taken. It is classic US design for capital buildings.

Marilyn - Glad you like this one. The Civic Center building is also fairly classic, but the lighting is better here!

SarpBKS - the city planners did a good job when they laid out the civic center. It is a nice place to visit.

Margherita - Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope all is well with you and yours.

Polytropos - The dome has been re-opened after many years of being closed. You just have to surrender all your flammables, bombs and guns at the door before entering. OOOOooooo...that's a sad commentary....;-(

Again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my Panaramio friends and neighbors. Be safe and well.

Greetings Stefano, Thank you so much for visiting the State Capital of Colorado during the holiday season. The building is very pretty at night any time of the year, but with Christmas snow on the ground it is especially so. Thanks you for the Christmas wishes. Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to you and your loved ones.

Great pic. The cupola is open for visitors. From it the visitor will have a great overlook over downtown and to the Rocky Mountains. I had this. Greetings from Germany! M.
