I wasn't precisely sure where to post this one. I should also add that it is not my photo. I lifted it off my son's Facebook page. He took this picture today on Camelback Mountain, where he had taken a hike with his dog, 99 (in the foreground).
You have shown some wonderful pictures of your area, and I know everyone would love to see more. If you made a thread like that -- as short or long as you wish right now -- you'd have a place to showcase any Phoenix photos as time and opportunity allowed. If you don't have enough pics of your own to start, go ravage your son's fb page!
I love this photo [the second photo in #72]. The tension between the blue of the sky, the foreground building and the next building down the street is perfect. Also the ochre trim is almost perfectly complimentary to the purplish blue building in the background. Color compliments never go unnoticed by the eye but can be a bit dazzling if too prominent. These aren't.
<edit to add...> I forgot to mention the palm shadows!

My friend paid a visit to me this past September and we spent the night on Mont Saint-Michel. Here are a few pictures we took from the original chapel deep in the bowels of the abbey. I am quite sure we will go to hell for committing blasphemy on the altar but at least it seemed to amuse the other visitors.
