Side trip: a new look for the copper dome

No matter what I might think about how much it cost, the first time I saw the new dome on the Kansas State Capitol building I couldn't believe what a change it was.  

I used to work in Topeka so I got used to seeing the patina on the dome (and then, for an eternity, the scaffolding around the dome while renovations took place).  But I hadn't been through in a while and when I saw that the renovations were complete I made sure to bring my camera on the next trip.

I'm really fond of adding patinas to copper and I loved the old look but the new deep color is stunning.
