The State of Idaho's capitol building in Boise was completed in 1920. It's design is inspired by notable Romanesque styles, especially the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. There are 219 columns of all styles.
There is over 50,000 square feet of marble from various places. A composite type was also used -'Scagliola' which is a mixture of granite, marble dust, gypsum and glue, then dyed to look like marble.

Another fine piece.

This is a more typical Capitol Building and I really like that style!
A very attractive picture too!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition really pleased me!
TFS - congrats,

Well taken capture of the Capitol contrasting with the sky at the back
Like also the space leaved at the front with some green plants to add color along with the yellow ribbons

Good morning Ray,
Smaller than Washington-DC capitol building, but same style built, marble with culumns and a Dome.
POV chosen show well the whole length of it's facae, wide stairway leading towards the yellow-ribons decorated entrance, which is prominently on pic. with the tall pillars.
A fine photojob done, even as it was a partly cloudy day.
Enjoy your weekend,
