I like this capture, though the person in the forground is distracting. Maybe crop out the bottom of the image and repost it in more panoramic dimensions.

The work of art may have a moral effect, but to demand moral purpose from an artist is to make him ruin his work. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - 1832)
