Phoenix Skyline at Nightfall

The last colors of the darkening sunset provide a backdrop for the glistening twinkle of the lights of the Phoenix skyline.

Going from left to right in the skyline, the large low-rise building on the far left is Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The stadium has a retractible roof.

The second high-rise to the right of Chase Field with the crane with the white light on top is the building under construction where our office will be located next Spring. I am excited to go back to working in downtown Phoenix.

I hope you enjoy the colors and shapes of the Phoenix skyline.

Are you going to start a postcard business?! You could! This is brilliant!

Your night shots are simply amazing, Julie. We can look inside lighted windows and feel so present. All those coming after, please enlarge this shot to see the detail.

From the solitude of the sea
To the bustle of the city,
You capture it all
Magnificently!

Beautiful shot Julie. I'm trying to figure out where you were to take this photo!

You had to be there at the right time to capture that lovely color in the sky.

Sharon,
Julie took this photo from Papago Park, on the rise of the butte just west of the Desert Botanical Garden. That location offers views west to downtown Phoenix (and beyond), east over the rest of Papago Park, Scottsdale, and Mesa, all the way to the Superstition Mountains, southeast to the Tempe Butte, southwest to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and south Mountain, and more.

That is soooo very nice, Julie! Did I read that you just got a Nikon D300...'cause that camera will give you great night shots!
