The Nebraska state capitol building in Lincoln has been known as the “tower on the plains” since it’s completion in 1932.
The building design was the product of a nationwide design competition in 1920.
It was under construction from 1922 to 1932.
The 400 ft domed tower can be seen for miles.
On top of the dome is a 19 ft tall bronze sower.
Clad in Indiana limestone, the building is described as the nation's first truly vernacular State Capitol.
This photograph may not win a prize but it is unique. It was taken from a satellite camera.
