Phoenix Skyline

The sunset wasn't what I hoped. There were some good clouds, but they were too thin to produce anything very intense. I stayed positive and kept waiting, but it fizzled. On to plan B...

As it got dark and the city lights came up, I changed lenses and decided to shoot the downtown skyline. I didn't realize you could see traffic going up South Mountain until I got home and processed this image. 

The foothills of North Mountain provided an ideal location for either sunset or city lights photography. It's very near where I live, so I can scurry up here again the next time the sunset looks promising.

I finished the night with my telephoto. Some of the HDR exposures were taking over 20 seconds as the light faded.

See my Fine Art America gallery for a variety of high-quality products from individual prints and canvas wraps to metal prints and frame and matted works of photographic art.
