I often think of Obiwan Kenobi's line from Star Wars, modified slightly when I see this view of my favorite city: "Tucson Arizona, You'll not find a more retched hive of scum and villainy. We must be careful." This was taken just as twilight cracked on my first cloudy night of the run on Tuesday morning. You can see the Tucson Mountains silhouetted in the foreground and Ajo road (highway 86) snaking its way southwest towards us just past the hulking silhouette of Cat Mountain. Sharp eyes can even make out the Santa Catalina mountains behind town and perhaps other specific well lit places in town. This image was taken with my 70-300mm zoom at 70mm focal lenght on my 20D with an exposure of 15 seconds at f/11, ISO 800.
