If I really thought the 'skyline' of Vancouver Washington was impressive, I would post a link to it. Until then, here is a link to the skycams around Portland. The best thing the Vancouver cam points to is the Interstate Bridge! http://www.kgw.com/livecams/livecams_or_p1.html?10

Calgary is bigger than I thought  Wow!

I thought it was a little place where Trappers and Indians traded Furs, skins, beads, etc. .. Big grin

Well at the moment this is the best I can do for a webcam shot.




Come to think about it I might have a shot from the Inlet of Anchorage I might be able to scan in once I get home from work.

I will try and look for it.

I just love those pics of Frankfurt awesome place. I hope to be able to visit Germany soon. The buildings there are placed perfectly for me.

And yes Calgary has really grown. Especially considering that we had barely a skyscraper until the 1960's.

Here's a sick photo of the third largest (and greatest) city in the world, São Paulo. This city is litirally nothing but skyscrapers extending to about 20 km form the city center. (link is giving me trouble, here click if you can't see this photo http://www.geocities.com/scraperville/skylines/sao02.htm)




And here's Atlanta with Midtown and Downtown in the photo. One of my favorite views of the city is on the MARTA subway on the East Line where you cross over I-75/85. You can see downtown, midtown and Buckhead all at the same time, one day I'll get a photo of this view.

Go to www.superdomephoto.com to check out some good New Orleans skyline shots.....I have a really good one downloaded on my computer, if anybody would like it, just tell me and I will email it to you...it's a nice aerial shot of the entire downtown plus the Mississippi River and the two bridges. Makes a nice wallpaper.

Hi,

I think that here in germany, apart from Frankfurt/Main, no city can really say that it has a skyline, but see what I have for you here:

Leipzig, Germany
