I couldn't take a picture since I was driving, but just before dawn and driving east on the 403 from the 407 interchange, you are gifted with an absolutely spectacular view of the Mississauga skyline. All the buildings are silhouetted by the morning sky, and the tall, sometimes sinuous buildings are contrasted beautifully by the natural corridor the 403 passes through in this section. I highly recommend checking it out sometime and perhaps someone with greater photography skills than I can grab a picture.

My bad, I'm not from here. I saw a sign that said deer foot and assumed I was there.

I'd say the view from Scottsman's Hill is becoming a less signature shot with the "main" Downtown Calgary skyline being blocked more and more by Beltline condos.

The CN Tower looks like a giant lit-up palm tree in those photos.

I was gonna say the same thing. The Bow can't even be seen from Scottsman's Hill anymore. My favourite new view is the one from the west along Bow Trail where you can see EAP 1 and 2 lit up with the top of the Bow in the background.
