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.
