Project365: Day 123 - Shattering Silence

Day 123 - Shattering Silence, originally uploaded by Tim Bungert.

We did a test-run of our upcoming Bike to Art and Architecture tour this evening. Our tour route ends on the hill by the Iowa State Capitol and the Judicial Building.

This sculpture, "Shattering Silence" by Iowan artist James Ellwanger, sits on top of that hill looking back towards downtown.

The idea for this photo hit right between the eyes--literally. As we rode down the sidewalk toward the sculpture I happened to ride right through spot where the sun refracted just right through the orb in the center and created a blinding light.

After stopping and letting my eyes readjust to normal lighting conditions, I hopped off my bike and walked back to that same spot to get the photo.
