Above is a photo of Denver's Union Station neighborhood. It is truly incredible the transformation that has taken place in this part of Denver in recent years. Several construction cranes can be seen in the below photo.  I captured this photo on 1/10/17. It won't belong before this view greatly changes as 1709 Chestnut and 16 Chestnut are making their vertical ascent.

With some recent free time I have captured some photos in and around Downtown Denver on two separate urban hikes. I really enjoyed getting out and photographing Downtown Denver area since I did not have much free time to do so during the summer and fall. To begin, here is a series of photos captured from the Auraria Campus. The crane for 1144 Fifteenth Street is visible. When Looking closely, you can see a concrete boom just above the roofline of 1401 Lawrence that is in place to pour concrete for the elevator shaft of 1144 Fifteenth Street. It won't be long before 1144 Fifteenth Street makes a major impact on the Denver skyline. Downtown Denver Here is one looking towards the north where we can see The Confluence, a 34-story luxury apartment building that is under construction.

Denver Skyline Looking West

The Denver Skyline is my favorite subject to photograph. The Wednesday before turkey day I snapped a couple photos of the Denver Skyline looking towards the Rocky Mountains. To the right of the Four Seasons, you can see the crane of 1155 Fifteenth Street. Based on this, the top portion of 1144 Fifteenth Street will be visible from this vantage point. The Denver Skyline sure does look impressive looking towards to mountains. I going to get a print of the black and white one and hang it on my wall along with my other favorite photos of Denver. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, Justin Denver Skyline Denver Skyline
