I like the angle you used, and there is something about a church steeple against a blue sky like that I just love!

It looks kind of Gothic! I like the composition with the palm tree in the frame.

It looks great with that blue sky. I have to come to Phoenix in May. I am not looking forward to the heat.

The steeple is great and look at that blue sky! Here it's all cloudy now and I hear thunders...

This is the church,
This is the steeple.
Open the door,
See all the people.

Remember that little hand trick?

Terrific photo...what a great sky!

So pretty...the steeple, the palm tree and that gorgeous, clear, blue sky. Lovely.

It is an impressive steeple. For Phoenix, those dates make it pretty old, I'll bet.
