This is probably one of the best aerial of Ottawa we've seen here!

I'd have to agree.

It gives Ottawa a sense of grandeur on the same scale as those Vancouver pics we saw in the skyline thread.

It looks good I agree but it would look better if the Gatineau Hills were in the background. For this you'd have to shoot from the other angle so not sure what the city shot would look like.

The auto-rotating webcam from the Westin Hotel in Halifax (link provided by q12 above) provides a great view of the city and Harbour on a clear day.

^Now that's what I like. Just a couple taller apartment buildings scattered in the typical Montreal urban fabric.

Tiny spur-of-the-moment photo essay of shops along Wellington Street in Stratford by a crappy photographer with a cellphone. As a kid I was always fascinated by the doorways beside the shops leading to the upper floors. Who would live up there above a busy downtown street, and why?

In smaller towns and cities they generally tended to be reserved for those unable or, seemingly inexplicably, unwilling to shell out for a "proper" house away from downtown with yards and driveways. But that's changing. Above the shops in Stratford you've now got condos, apartments and numerous businesses that don't require storefronts appealing to browsers on the street (yoga studios, naturopath clinics, clubs etc.).

I find them to be one of the defining elements of the British and North American urban form. My eyes immediately seek them out when looking at any downtown street, and I always notice when they're missing (how do people get upstairs then? From the back?).

McMillan Island in Langley has some nice trails for a nice walk in the park.



This small island is connected to Fort Langley in the west via a bridge. On the east side, the Albion Ferry used to connect to Maple Ridge prior to completion of Golden Ears Bridge.





The trail leading to the tip of the island is called Tavistock Point Trail.







So much green everywhere.



Some big new houses across the Bedford Channel.



View downstream Fraser River.



It's an easy, yet nice walk if you happen to be visiting Fort Langley.

well that's a bit different. Looks more like Klondike Valley than Khyber Pass. Neat.

Love that Montreal set. Makes me homesick, and I haven't lived in Montreal since 2005.

Le Quartier chinois... we should call it "La Rue chinoise"






Avenue de l'Hôtel-de-Ville


Calm alleys in the middle of downtown


CHUM


Bye bye hobos... (yeah, right, Coderre!)

Another green alley (behind Saint-Hubert St.)

Excellent shots Laceo, also looking forward to the new library in Halifax.

I took a few of the bridge Wed. night.
Too. Many. People. Barely made it to a vantage point a few minutes before it was over. Glad I didn't bring a tripod.









Biosphere, Calder


Zipline finish


Party Boat


HMCS Montreal
