Sunset Over Phoenix

Last night, I went to Papago Park, and took a hike up to the top of this little mountain to try and get a nice shot of Camelback Mountain. Well... After an hour of walking around, I still couldn't even see Camelback Mountain, but suddenly I realized, I have been searching for 3 months for a nice angle of downtown Phoenix. I finally found it. We actually had a nice sky yesterday, instead of our usual solid blue (brown near the horizon) but, about 20 minutes before sunset, it got really cloudy, and I thought the sunset was going to fizzle out. Well, luckily, I stayed, just in case, and the sunset was one of the most spectacular ever! This was taken about 20 minutes after sunset, when it was dark enough to see the city lights. The details this new camera picks up is amazing!
