About the Cover: Harrisburg


It is one of my favorite sights and it is especially stirring at night.

This is the dome of the state capitol in Harrisburg.  I took it on inauguration morning, January 17th.  This is the view from the east side of the building.

There are a few different ways to reach the capitol complex.  I always take the first Interstate 83 exit after the split with I-81.  It takes you down Route 22 to the State Street Bridge, and there are few things more spectacular than the lights of the bridge with the dome framed in the middle.

No matter how many times I see it, it still "wows" me.

By the way, below is a photo I took on inauguration morning, 2015.  It's clear the state upped its lighting game.
