Thanks, Bobdreamz! I suspect lots of guys are using one or more of my pics as their screen background. You are just the first one to admit it. Yes, I do feel honored to have my work considered for a picture book, but I've always had some idea of what I wanted to shoot of the new Miami skyline and how to shoot it.
That is a vantage point I've wanted for a long time, and I pulled over onto the grass of the Julia Tuttle Causeway walked up the bridge (which does not have a pedestrian sidewalk) to make that shot. One of the SkyscraperCity forumers said if I didn't use the highest resolution to make the shoot, they wouldn't be able to use the photo, but I can always shoot it again. The only difficulty would be the weather and the sky conditions. It's hard to capture solar halos projecting rainbows over the skyline!
