A few new Skyline Shots

Hey guys
Here are a few more recent skyline shots. Also hoping to take an 8 crane shot tomorrow.

Enjoy

In the first shot you can see 4 cranes if you look close.

Nice shots.

Those Darko buildings really blend into the skyline, which, in the case of this city, is not the best thing in the world. The Thomas building will be a nice addition.

Awesome pics Ray!!

I was literally about to come on here and say how stunned I am at how gross those Darko buildings are. Who knew it was possible to build 1970's commie-blocks in 2016. Sheesh

Here is one more the best of the best. I am hoping its posted large enough for you all to pick out the 7 cranes. There are actually 8 however believe it or not two of them line up perfectly from this vantage point. I wish the Sun was out it would have been much nicer. If you guys feel the full size would be better let me know. Its very large though.

I wonder if anyone has a recent picture of Hamilton taken from this vantage point. It would be interesting to see what the few new towers has added to this perspective. I would jus love to see.. even one tower that towers over the skyline.. one can hope.

I don't have an image, but Marquee Residence has really made an impact on the skyline from the west and when driving down the 403.

Lamb's Television City towers will do likewise, and the stuff proposed along Main West will block out some of the older buildings (like the dreaded Tower B apartments and that red brick skin job to the right of it in that panorama), and probably block the Regency too. The Connolly and Connaught will pop up in there flanking Landmark Place, if those actually happen.

hey Hamilton - I moved here a few years ago, lurked around on here since, decided to resurrect an old profile to post some shots from my large collection.

I mostly shoot with an iphone lately, hand-held, so excuse the corresponding quality

Love that night shot and the one from last spring. She looks pretty damn good in green.

Thanks.

Nice! That layer of pollution north of the lake is unfortunate (but unfortunately still a common occurrence in the area, depending on the atmospheric conditions)

I wish 25 Main West had been built much taller and with more girth. It would stand out nicely in the skyline if it were scaled up.

Some of the smog is smoke from several barn fires in Halton region on Sunday afternoon.
