Building for the view

I’ve had pictures of “the praying monk” rock formation on Camelback Mountain before, but this time we see a home under construction in the shadow of this Phoenix landmark.  This house will have some amazing views when it’s done.

And it looks as if the design will harmonize with the setting.

The zoning laws must be very generous. Surprised that it appears to be so close to the natural setting.

Hello Sharon, the setting is fabulous but I tend to agree with Kate....

Oh this needs to stop. They will ruin that beautiful mountain if they keep allowing people to build homes on it.
I love Praying Monk rock.

I agree with the three comments above. I thought that they had stopped allowing people to build up on Camelback Mountain, but there have been some new homes built there recently. Julie was commenting that from our bedroom looking up at Camelback at night there are now more lights shining on the mountain.

yes, there seems to be more construction occurring on Camelback Mountain. I now have three people in new homes who leave their lights on all night long. Nobody did that before so it is very annoying.

The light is great on your photo, highlighting the mountain while putting the construction project in the shadows.

I love the light in this picture! Nice capture. I agree with everyone on the building of houses on the mountain.

I wonder if who this is for? It's true, if people keep building homes like this there will be no more amazing views left. The photo is great. I hope you take another when it's finished.

Great mountain - too bad it is being encroached on by the homes. Is there no land use regulation to prevent that? Is this part of the city or outside in the countryside?

Wonderful light and shade play!
