From atop the Carew Tower
One of Cincinnati's best kept secrets is the Carew Tower 49th floor observation deck. For two whole dollars you get a 360 degree view of downtown, Over-The-Rhine, Covington and Newport Kentucky, the West Side, East End and the list goes on and on. It is hands down the best view around. So yesterday after my lovely Lisa and I did a super cool photo shoot of local band Buffalo Wabs And The Price Hill Hustle in the old Decorsey Train Yard south of Latonia, Kentucky (and after much debate on if we should wait for better clouds) we headed over to the Carew Tower for sunset. When we reached the top and as we were setting up the sun was literally sinking below the horizon, after a few minutes it seemed like nothing was going to happen so I moved on to shooting some cityscapes. About 10 minutes had passed when Lisa said something to me and when I turned around to respond I realized there was a show going on behind me. "Oh my gosh!" And I ran over to the western side of the deck as the sky over Price Hill and Western Hills had turned aglow with a beautiful Red. I've said it once, and I'll say it again, never underestimate a sunset. Just when you think it's a dud, it will prove you wrong, and my friends I've been proven wrong on several occasions.
