The Stratosphere | December 4, 2014 | 12:51 P.M.

It was a dark and foggy morning. Suddenly … an email arrived. “We have a story on the foggy weather, can someone take a fog photo?” But by this time, it wasn’t so much foggy as it was hazy and cloudy. I went to the top of the McCarran International Airport parking garage to get a better vantage point on the city. The fog was gone, but the clouds were so low, you couldn’t see the top on the Stratosphere Tower. So I shot it. The end.
