Phoenix Arizona Skyline

This is the concept. I like the 24th St & Camelback Road area with downtown & South Mountain. I was a little late for the light and a cloud cast a shadow on downtown. I hope you like this one. But this might not be my final photo of this concept. I'm thinking of going lower on the mountain to condense the distance. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

 

For anyone not familiar with the Valley of the Sun. This is shot from the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. The first group of buildings is at 24th St & Camelback. The Ritz Carlton is the Rosy Pink building. The Camelback Esplanade is to the left of the Ritz. You can see Macy's at Biltmore Fashion Park. As you look past the first grouping of buildings, you can see downtown Phoenix. Chase Field is on the left with the roof open. South Mountain is in the background. As people mention in the comments, this is a relatively smog-free day for Phoenix.

 

[edited 9/10/07 I tried this view, but the smog was not as cooperative.
