The Hans Christian Heg Statue

Wisconsin State Capitol

Wisconsin State Capitol

Hans Christian Heg, a statue of Norweigian immmigrant who was a soldier in the Civil War. A prominent statue on the grounds of the State Capitol, and one I’ve photographed repeatedly without ever liking the results. Somehow, the snow and the white stone set the dark statue off to its best advantage, and I finally have my photo.

  5. Its interesting how we visualize what we want and image to look like and then find it difficult to create the image that meets our expectations. Congrats on getting your image!
