US Capitol dome

US Capitol dome

Steph and Dan, Jane and Charlie and Tim and myself went on a tour of the Capitol. The tour guide insisted we stand on the side of the Rotunda, which made it difficult to get a picture of the dome (and he said no snapping while walking!) but I managed to stop for a second somewhat under the dome to take this.
