At first glance, the view seems to be from atop Piestewa Peak looking south toward the downtown skyline.

Upon further inspection, it’s all wrong.

The photo, while beautiful, gets weirder with time.

The photo shows high-rise buildings, a state highway and — in the foreground — mountains.

But something with the mountains is amiss. They are verdant, green mountains.

And the buildings. They seem like they’ve been fanned out, like a deck of cards — no depth.

Needless to say, people had a field day. By Tuesday morning, the photo had more than 170 likes, more than 80 quote tweets and more than 20 retweets. It had over 115,000 impressions and counting.

“This is one crazy photoshopped pic,” said one Twitter user. “Surprised you didn’t drop in a jackalope too.”

“Drop the coordinates,” one said.

“Uhhhhhh what is this photoshop?” said another.

“Looks fine. I don’t get the outrage. If anything, I think they should lean more into the bit. Put in a lake. Add some bears, moose, beavers, and other mountainous animals that are native to the area,” said another.
