  I never realized how pretty a skyline Cincinnati, OH has.
  Last evening, Devin Hensley and I took a trek down to Covington, KY just on the other side of the Ohio River from the Queen City. We are in town all week for some CAD training just east of town.
  We had intentions of eating at a German place and when we found out it was closed, made a jaunt over to The Cock and Bull English Pub where we ate fish & chips and took in some great atmosphere. It was a very nice alternative.
  After we ate we managed our way down to the riverfront so I could get some skyline images. I had seen some images that included the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge in them and just had to get a vantage point that included it. I loved the brick towers and it was the only bridge out of many in the city that had lights on it.
  The bridge did not disappoint and neither did the Cincy skyline. Got to the waterfront just as blue hour was finishing up and rattled off a few shots from both sides of the bridge. This particular one is a 3 shot, vertical panorama so that I could get the near tower large in the foreground and still bit the row of lit up buildings across the river in the distant background.
  The great thing about it all is that I didn't do much other than stitch them together and patch a couple of dust spots in Picasa.
