This is our State Capitol building here in Austin, Texas. It is constructed of pink granite and is actually 14 feet taller than the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. I caught this image early one morning as the sun was beginning its ascent. I liked the angle of the shot since it incorporated the statue of the cowboy and the cannon, both things that have been widely used in Texas. :)
In a 2008 poll of the American Institute of Architects, it was ranked the #1 State Capitol. Though difficult to see, the statue atop the Capitol is called "The Goddess of Liberty".
