Really tough from that angle, but I think I can make out an orange lower mandible, which rules out western kingbird. I would expect a western kingbird to have more yellow on the belly than the light wash this bird appears to show too. Long primary projection leans towards western wood-pewee over any empids that would have that general overall coloration and bill length. I can't make out much or any of an eyering either from this photo, but it could be there. Looks odd too for a pewee though with a shortish bill for that species, strange posture (for a WWPE), and quite pale overall. Possibly due to viewing angle and the photo being a little overexposed? Tough call.
