This was my second attempt at capturing this photo. Ironically, this was the second failed attempt. I originally set out to capture a sunset from this lower angle, but couldn't get a shot I liked. Only this time, I decided to wait a little longer and turn it into a night photo. Luckily I had the patience to wait that night, because I love the way this photo turned out.
The sky had almost completely transitioned from dusk to night with only a sliver of deep blue still visible near the horizon.
The lights of Downtown Nashville reflect beautifully off the calm Cumberland River.
The Batman (AT&T) building stands tall next to an attention attracting sky light reaching towards space.
The air was calm, crisp and cool. It was one of the last chilly nights of the spring.
This is a pretty iconic view of downtown Nashville. It didn't take long living here to see this view in many photos used by local companies. It makes a lot of sense. It's a very nice view of downtown and It's in a very nice and easy to get to location. In fact, as I arrived to take this photo, a photographer had just finished up taking photos of a couple that had just gotten engaged.
I normally try to avoid replicating photos that I've seen in many different places. But there was something about this view that made me want to try anyway. There is something about the calmness of the river at sunset, butting up against the bustling entertainment area of Nashville's downtown that I find very interesting and beautiful.
This is my favorite spot to photograph and just appreciate downtown Miami.
Unfortunately this spot has succumb to the ever growing construction of Miami and is now currently being turned into a condo. I guess it had to happen eventually. A view this good couldn't be left alone.
