Location: Phoenix, AZ
This scene literally stopped me in my tracks as I was driving by during my outing to downtown Phoenix this past Tuesday night. I ended up parking nearby and photographing along a couple of blocks for a few hours before I returned to take this photo and then head home.
I waited because I wanted more clouds in the sky to lighten it and better differentiate it from the subject, which is always a risk since the presence of clouds is quite unpredictable and often things get worse, not better.
However, this time around, I was lucky and everything came together exactly as I had hoped. 8^)
