From the capitol grounds. A shot later in the day would show the capitol dome's reflection better.

Not that it matters in this day and economy.. but is there a height limit in Columbia's Downtown?? I know no one is going to build a 30 story building any time soon but I figured there was a limit at some level

The only height limit is in the Vista - west of Assembly Street. I think the height limit there is 80 feet.
