So the world will end by New Year's Eve?

In talking to someone about skylines, I thought about Portland's, which is by far - to me - the most beautiful of any other place I've lived.

Granted, I don't live IN Portland, or even IN Oregon, but I'm flipping close, yo.

Inspired indirectly by kateri_kachina, post me a picture of YOURS, unkay?

Thanks much.

Well, I really don't have a skyline. I live in a village in a little valley (the closest impressive skyline is Pittsburgh, and that's 2-3 hours away. :p).

So here's a pic of what I see out my living room window. It is rather impressive in the fall. :)

Hah, reminds me of the view I had when I used to live in PA.

I'll be moving back soon, I guess I should get reaquainted...but I'll miss my pretty tall buildings. :-(

I like the city and the tall buildings, too. But sometimes, seeing real trees and forests is nice. :p

Where at in PA are you from?

Well, I'm actually from Baltimore, but I spent a couple of years in Everett (a small town outside of Bedford, which is a small town itself but lots of people seem to know it for some reason) and then I spent about a year in Reading, which I still visit frequently because my in-laws live there. Within the next year we'll probably be moving to the York area. You?

Hah, well I've obviously heard of all those towns... Everett and Reading are a little over 100 miles from me. I'm from Wilcox (which is another place that no one has heard of); it's in the St. Mary's/Johnsonburg/Kane area.

apirka, that is a fabulous view. I have one like it up here in Zelienople (about 35 mins north of Pittsburgh).

Aubrey, here's a link to the Pittsburgh skylines.

I've only seen a couple skylines. Seattle, Portland, Vancouver BC, Sacramento, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Denver, Phoenix, and I guess Albequerque's.

To me the one that always stands out is Seattle's.

I love the way Portland looks shot across the river, and I love the surprise when you come through the Vista Ridge tunnel and are immediately in the heart of the city.

But Seattle's skyline.... When you round the bend on I-5 north and there's building's shooting up to the sky nestled between rolling green hills and a picturesque waterway... Often the tops of those buildings are even shrouded in clouds. There's just so much drama there.

I don't much like the city itself, but it is a sight.

Chi-TOOOOOOOOOWN! I think my city's gorgeous. See that red building? My school's on that block, and I can see it from my house, 8 miles away. ^_^

I don't have one that I've shot on my own but if I ever venture down to the lake I'll take a shot.

I do have shots of sears tower and some of the surrounding areas, OH! I do have some reverse skyline shots from inside sears tower.
