The United States Airforce Academy Chapel, located in Boulder Colorado. This is an all-faith chapel.

Designed by Walter A. Netsch of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill of Chicago (SOM)

This shot is only the top of the 150' tall structure. Cropped slightly above the doors, I was looking to emphasize the spire at the entry and the steel architectural details.

I took this shot in 2007 while visiting the school. This architectural element is one of the most photographed in the country and is a beautiful piece of architecture. If you are in the area, I highly recommend visiting the school and looking at the chapel.

UPDATE: This image is being published in the OneExposure Photo Album for 2009. I have submitted over 40 images to OneExposure and only two have been selected for publication. I was real happy to see something make it. Now if I could just get a shot selected here :-)
