The Hammer is a maddddd dynamic city. Love it!

I was in the car and was going to Oakville the other night with my family and discovered the best skyline shot ever. Hwy 6 heading downhill to the 403 at night...it was beautiful. You gotta get on that. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me.

There are TONS of great-but-diffifult-to-reach places for amazing skyline views:
- Valley Inn Rd in Aldershot near the RBG
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...&t=h&z=16&om=1
-Syndenham Rd in Dundas
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...&t=h&z=17&om=1
(if you look closer to the bottom of the road b4 it goes down the escarpment & zoom in, you'll actually see a rest area where people stop and admire the skyline all the time)


Flar. Thanks for making my (our) city so damn beautiful!!

^^Yes, that's from the Incredible Hulk set, I was waiting for someone to catch that.

@Cambridgite: I love the view from Hwy 6, I'm going to go up there for pics someday but it's difficult because there's no pedestrian access on that highway and it's really busy.

@DC83: Thanks for the info on that Aldershot location, I'll check that out someday too. These ones are from Sydenham Rd early in the morning:

Great stuff! Love the person walking with the cane, shot from above, and anytime a city can double as N.Y. that's gotta say something...

I don't think i had ever even heard of Hamilton at the beginning of this year.. And since then I have seen so many great photo threads of the place. Thanks Flar! You've educated someone.

Well maybe not quite, but still pretty amazing from an urban enthusiast's perspective



@the rest of you: thanks for the kind words

@DC83: I actually thought of the calendar idea last week--I even know a guy with a printing business that does calendars--but it's too close to 2008 for any commercial venture. I'm going to try for a 2009 calendar. Black's or Shoppers Drug Mart can make individual calendars though so if you (or anyone else) wants one for 2008 let me know.

Re: Calendar
