The water tower in downtown Gilbert

One of my favorite landmarks around this part of Phoenix is the water town in downtown Gilbert. Right below it is a splash pad water play area for kids, which is where we always watch our little girl play after having breakfast at Liberty Market (a faaaantastic place to eat).

This past weekend we were there once again, this time with some of our family and their kids, so we sat for awhile and had a great time. The weather was magnificent, it was dropping to below 90 on that day and the clouds especially were the fluffy kind we hadn’t seen in awhile. As they floated overhead, I just knew I had to get a shot of this water tower with one of those cloudy things floating above it.

No tripod handy, this is just a three-bracket HDR with the usual suspects of Photomatix/CS5/Imagenomic/Topaz Adjust. It was actually a fairly troublesome, noisy beast to deal with, took me awhile to get this where I wanted it to be.

    Hello Mike,

    I’m in the process of putting together a Farmers Market in Downtown Gilbert with the city and I had some extra time this morning and started looking for some wonderful pictures to load on to our upcoming Facebook Page…. Id LOVE to use this picture… The Water Tower with the clouds is beautiful!!

    If you could please send me an email with a copy of the picture with your logo on it that would be awesome! Do you have any more pictures of Downtown Gilbert?

    Thank you very much,
