Today's image is titled Downtown Madison in transition and was photographed by Maciej Smuga.
"Lots of construction," notes the caption to the photo, shot in July from a high point on the southern edge of the UW campus. Facing northeast towards the Capitol, the photo shows the new University Square complex slowly rising to fill in the city's skyline, backed by a handful of apartment buildings and the Overture Center, all built this decade. "Soon, Madison's once pokey downtown will be a maze of concrete canyons," the photographer concludes. "Yay!"
