These photos were taken October 11, 2008 at sunrise. Although the light conditions were not ideal for the details of the front of the courthouse, we did get some dramatic images at dawn. We started early so that we could get the last 15 counties in one day! Additional photos were taken March 14, 2004 about 1:30 p.m.
