A final visit to the seventh floor

The Puddle - Downtown Phoenix Storm Reflection

(click to see the big puddle in a lightbox)

This evening of February 20th, 2011 was pretty awesome. Those that have followed me for awhile may remember some of the other shots (here and here) from the top of this downtown Phoenix parking garage right next to Chase Field. Seven stories. An absolutely amazing sunset with the most gorgeous clouds you ever saw. And a previous rain left puddles everywhere.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love clouds and sunsets like this. They are incredibly rare.

This will likely be the last image I post from that night. Time to move on, and leave it behind.

    Another nice one from the series Mike, and a good way to close it out.

    You were on a roll that night! To date, ‘Seventh Heaven’ is one of my favorite shots and this one is equally spectacular! I hope all 3 are on printed BIG, on canvas, and hanging in your home… 🙂

    This is a beauty. Understandable why you’d be so excited by the opportunities that night.

    You already know how big of a fan I am of this night. Seventh Heaven is such a killer shot. Gotta love those ‘Epic’ nights. 🙂 Nice catch of the fading light.

    Nice shot man. I remember those epic clouds. Good to see more from that.

    Great shot Mike. Amazing colors and the reflection in the puddle just completes this image.
    I can see why you love to shoot from there. – first thing I noticed was there was no power lines, but then again, 7th floor… Man I hate power lines… 🙂

    Such an intense sunset… it’s actually kinda scary. Scary in a good way of course:-) Nice use of the puddled reflection in the foreground btw.
