5/9/2015 The US Capitol dome is undergoing a renovation. The night view of the scaffolding is beautiful. We visited one afternoon and stayed from afternoon to evening so that I could take pictures. As an added bonus I also took a US Botanic Garden night shot also. If you go, go on the weekend after the crowds have left. Park in the lots right in front of the Capitol and Botanic Garden. Have you been to the Botanic Garden?
