A favorite viewpoint of mine, located just a few miles outside of Denver. When driving west out of the Mile High City, the motorist crests a hill, turns a corner and is confronted with the Continental Divide as it becomes the horizon.
What I love about this picture is the number of San Francisco landmarks that are together in the frame: The Victorian themed architecture, the Bay Bridge, Coit Tower and of course Lombard Street, electrified by this long exposure of a taxicab navigating its 8 hairpin turns.
The first hint of morning light changes the mood of this scene from pitch darkness to "blue hour", Sloan Lake in Denver, Colorado.
This shot wasn't easy to get. From a top-secret vantage point in midtown Omaha, Nebraska the state's busiest street is aghast with activity and big box/chain stores and restaurants which do utilize bright, lii-up facades and storefronts!
Fern Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park is a great place to stop and rest while backpacking through the southeast section of the park. There's nothing like the rugged solitude of the Rockies at night.
Chicago from the Lake Shore Drive Bridge one Friday Night
The City of Chicago protrudes out of the Chicago River as some swift moving Cirrus clouds whiz overhead.
These trees, dramatically lit up for the night, tower over this Arizona villa.
