Marvelous, as you can see, the beauty of the Capitol really shines in low light. This photo of the Capitol Dome was taken from the east side during summer at 8.53pm right after sunset.

It would be a great experience for you photograph the capitol at sunset or at sunrise.

The nearest metro station on this side of The Capitol is the Capitol South Metro station serviced by the Blue and Orange Line. Please refer to the map below.
