Anyone know where this may have been taken?

It's obvious that the spot is in Iowa, but I don't cross the river much...so I have no clue where the exact location is. I'm guessing it's a park and with that view it is probably a popular spot.

Thanks!

That is definitely it. I was unaware this park even existed, thanks Coyote!

no, it is the Lincoln Monument. You can see the north grain elevator.

That's the old elevator along Broadway that was torn down. This is definitely Fairmount park

Usually a lot of strange people milling about up there.

I've easily been up there 3 dozen times trying to shoot the skyline, but I think I have come away empty handed every time. I don't have a single photo on my website from there. I'm not sure if its bad luck or what, but I just can't get anything good from Fairmount.
