Arizona sunset as seen on the Chase Tower building in Phoenix.

Today will be rather short and sweet.  Last week we had two days of overcast and on the first day the sunset was simply amazing.  Of course I missed it and regretted it that whole night.  Well, when the next day rolled around with the same overcast look I knew Mother Nature was throwing me a bone.  You don’t get many second chances with Her, so you act when you have the chance.

The building pictured is the Chase Tower in downtown Phoenix.  I was hoping for more of the sunset to reach higher on the building but I believe the overcast kept that from happening.

  1. That is some amazing color. I am digging the contrast between the fiery clouds on one side, and the cool clouds on the other side of the building. Great shot!

  2. I think that we received the same cloud reflections memo this week! Very dramatic capture and creative, down-low perspective. Love the contrast between the foreground and background buildings.
