Day 307- Capital of California

Benicia was the capital of California- really! Just from 1853 to 1854- but the capital building remains. It is a California State Park, and, because of the budget crisis, is slated to be closed.  A local group is fighting its closure, so there is hope that this beautiful building will remain open for school children and the public to view and appreciate this little piece of history.

I took bracketed photos, which I merged in Photomatix for an HDR image.

  1. Beautiful shot! Wonderful angle and bright vibrant colors. HDR images, another thing to investigate.

    I considered taking a photo of California’s “other” capitol building but decided I didn’t feel like driving downtown and perhaps encountering some of the Occupy Sacramento crowd, so I went closer to home.

  2. Really like the HDR, it just brings all the color out.
