Another great image of the Capitol skyline in downtown Austin.  We captured the State Capitol with the city skyline in the background with two promenient building the Frost and Austonian at dusk.  This was captured from the north side of congress as the sun was setting with only a slight glow over the city.  Behind the Capitol you can see the iconic Frost building along with Austin tallest building the Austonian.  The skyline in the city are constantly changing so you never know if you will see the same view of the skyline each time you photograph downtown.  The capitol is not suppose to have taller buildings than itself within a certain area but things could change at any time.  This is one of my favorite view because you can really see the splendor of the building from here much better than the front because of the trees that line the front side of the building where they have grown up so much it hard to see the capitol.  I guess this is why I keep coming back to this location.   The capitol was built of red granite in 1888 and the style of architecture Renaissance Revival of the 15 century
