Beautiful pic. The entire Scotia Square block however (Plaza, Scotia Towers, MacKeen, Cogswell, Duke/Barrington Towers) is a blight on the skyline.

A friend took this shot from the 21st floor of the Westin Hotel right here in Ottawa recently, I thought that it was a cool pic for here, so used with permission.

The first scroll by that Calgary photo also gave me Vancouver vibes. Well, small Chinese city (because of the smoke) mixed with an unusual angle of Vancouver that didn’t show water or mountains. Or maybe it’s what Kelowna will look like in 50 years on a smoke filled day.

While technically a video.. well, actually a video, this condo for sale clip shows a great skyline shot (thus posting here) of Victoria at the very beginning and then starting again at the 2:23 mark. Had to use video as it’s nearly impossible to find skyline photos of Victoria as everyone is too busy taking garden, hiking, ocean, historic building shots. I like this angle, although it doesn’t show the Old Town buildings much which are normally prominent in a skyline shot looking from across the harbour, it does show a lot of density and depth. After seeing these shots, I was like, ok, Victoria you’re all done here, no need to add more, thank you and good night! Select 4K if you’re viewing on a compatible device.

A closer in version of the previously posted Calgary shot. Stunning.

It does look quite Asian.

^ That’s the Kondiaronk Belvedere. You have to either hike or ride a bus from Mont-Royal or Laurier station.

I love those Calgary pictures from that angle/location! A few 600-700 foot residential towers built close to the West End would really make this skyline pretty incredible!
