Downtown Spokane in the distance

Posted by
Don (Spokane, United States) on 2 February 2012 in Cityscape & Urban.

I took this shot of Spokane from a plateau showing the hills on the other side of the city proper. This "bottom-of-the-dish" effect causes some adverse air conditions including the haze you can see in this shot. The latest population figures for Spokane in 2010 was 471,221. Weather reports for Spokane can vary considerably since they come a weather station in the valley and from the International Airport west of town which is about 400 feet higher.(121m)

Except for the building in the background, that could be a small town anywhere.

I like the way the main street divides the composition, and all those green pines poking up on the left side.

Looks like a lovely place with a small town feel. I've never been to either Washington or Oregon. Hope I get there the spring, summer, or fall.
