This is a great thread, I'm glad it got moved to the Southeast.

Is that smog in that picture hanging over the city?

I'm guessing either that or the remains of morning fog.

This is the best picture I have seen that can layout how much uptown has sprawled in the last few years. Amazing what vantage points drones have opened up to photographers.

Based on the direction and length of the shadows, the photo appears to have been taken late in the day. I see a general haze, which does have the appearance of smog. There's also the appearance of a very thin haze layer close to the ground. The very thin haze layer is perplexing since it has the appearance of a shallow capping inversion, which wouldn't occur in the afternoon unless it had just rained in the last hour. It could be associated with rush hour vehicle emissions, but I still don't know why that secondary haze layer appears to be so thin, which would indicate morning. The shadows are certain, though.

The very thin haze layer close to the ground could be an artifact of the photography, or some sort of optical illusion. It is perplexing.

Beautiful photo, by the way. Love the trees and greenery.

Really appreciate these Houston and Dallas pics.

Midtown Houston is really filling in. Also like the one with Uptown Houston in the background in the early evening.

In the Dallas pic, what is the semi-highrise district north of downtown called? It's very impressive.

I see like minds think alike my friend as I often visit this thread for some of the best U.S. skyline Wallpaper shots here on SSC. Btw, the third image of Houston from the very top of this page is currently on my desktop!

That's a spectacular image, indeed.

609 Main, recently completed, is a great addition to the skyline from this angle.
