The United States Capitol Building, home of the United States Congress and legislative branch of the federal government. With its distinctive neoclassical style architecture, it was originally completed in 1800. It has been expanded over time with the Capitol Dome, and completed in 1863 after being adorned by the Statue of Freedom that sits atop the dome. Arguably the most recognizable building in the United States, the Capitol Building attracts millions of visitors per year.

I've truly taken for granted growing up in Arlington, Virginia, a mere bridge crossing away from Washington, D.C. As my passion for travel has grown over the years, so has my appreciation for what I have at home, especially since moving into D.C. proper in 2015. Being local, I have the luxury to be picky about when and what I shoot in this tourist-friendly city.

After spending a day sightseeing with the kids downtown, I made a strategic stop by the Capitol to both enjoy the inspiring and architecturally impressive building with my children and to get a feel for the Capitol Police on duty. I could sense it would be a good sunset that cold winter day. Being Super Bowl Sunday, I thought it wouldn't be too crowded so I returned that evening with fingers crossed that the Capitol Police would allow me to use my tripod. I was fortunate that day with both the officers on duty and the sky, and I was able to capture a tighter shot of the building with a vibrant sunset.

Standing in front of the Capitol of the United States of America brings a mix of emotions, among those national pride as well as awe of the structure itself. I wanted to mix two elements to make this dynamic image. While winter can oftentimes bring overcast and gloomy days, it also can bring some of the most beautiful skies with bold red, pink, and orange colors. The opportunity to photograph the vibrant winter sunset along with the splendor of one of the most iconic buildings in the United States was the icing on the cake of a great day in Washington, D.C.
