Calgary's built environment is quite impressive; the central area's cluster is very balanced and dense. Great pictures, too, by the way.

That last pano is very nice. Not often you can actually see the letters on the hill in front of the hospital and actually be able to read what they say Seeing how many cars are in the parking lot there is also quite a shock, I didn't realise it got that full (and thats all hospital staff between the two hospitals in the area)

I can see 14 cranes in that shot alone, not bad considering its on the other side of downtown from where most of them were when it was taken (and 2 of those 14 are now gone)

Woo-wie, that's quite the collection. To echo every other post so far, the last one is the icing on the cake.

You make some awesome panos. My favourite actually is the first autumn pano from crescent heights. One of the best views one can get of a skyline.

The last one shows how hilly the western half of the city really is.

Excellent Photos Nathen! I forgot how many panos you've done over the last year. That Autumn shot from Crescent Hill is money!

Beautiful shots, all of them! As far as skylines, Calgary has quickly become one of my favorites in Canada. Thanks!

The panos are great! And the skyline would be even better when those new 700 footers rise up.

System requirements to view this thread: a super-wide monitor and waterproof keyboard for the drool. Simply amazing. Calgary's skyline is almost perfectly balanced and proportioned.
