It is a nice picture! FYI that is not a ring road but the exit from the USA's most important highway (I-95) to downtown Miami. You can also see the elevated metro-rail tracks and the elevated people mover tracks and vehicle.

"How come there are no people in any of the Downtown pictures? With all those great condo towers, where are the people?"

I live down Miami way and I'd say that it's also the fact that from May until mid-October, it's sweltering hot and you really don't want to be walking around downtown Miami on one of those days. It's really, really uncomfortable.

Here are three pictures I took on a quick stop at South Beach (I live 45 minutes from it, I always wonder why I don't visit more often)
