This is a three exposure HDR of the Hall of Philosophy about 45 minutes after sunrise. It's a frustrating structure to photograph as it's never quite in the right light to get what you see when you're standing there. With the exception of some missing blue in the sky through the trees, this is pretty close to what you see when you're standing there, I think.
The Hall of Philosophy is home to a wide variety of lectures throughout the season. It's a rough split between talks sponsored by the department of education, and the department of religion. This year, for example, I saw back-to-back lectures at this pulpit from Bishop John Shelby Spong and Norman Lear. That sort of philosophical spread makes this place particularly special.
