Simply fantastic! It's so nice to finally see green again! New lens? Some were zoomed in pretty far yet still up to your standards of quality.

Another thing.. That damn red brick is almost GONE!!!!!!

that makes me so happy

Aww, thank you! Nope, not a new lens.

YES, GREEN! I was so excited.

And I noticed the red is almost gone too. Thought of you, lol!

This is probably my favorite set of yours! I feel like St. John's is greener earlier than usual this year

Great set of photos, Signal. The views from the hills are awesome, and nice to see some green.

Great shots! That last one should be the new main photo on the first page of the project thread!

Good idea. I edited the post JUST to replace the one of my shots from December, 2012, with this one.

Looks great!

It's going to look so good when the Fortis Building is retrofitted, the TD place reno is completely finished, the AP parkade is completely redone, 351 Water/Fortis Place completely curtained, and Deacon and Hilton are built (if they ever are..)

Thanks, I was waiting for you to take a near identical photo, that one looks great. I think there's about 6 years difference between the two.

I love that last skyline shot!

And looking at that aerial photo above makes me realize just how boring our downtown would be without the steep hills. It's the hills that make us so picturesque and unique!
