Not being familiar with Canadian skylines, I wish all of these pics were labeled so I would know what city I was looking at. All great pics whatever city they are.

No moreso than Australian cities blending into one. We can tell the difference between Toronto and Montreal as I am sure you can between Sydney and Melbourne. He has a good point, not everyone is familiar with different cities and people should label what city they are posting photos of.

I'm guilty lol. I thought only Canadians who liked to visit this thread, so I didn't bother to put the correct label

It's easy to forget; I've probably done the same thing myself at some point!

LOL. I love looking at skyline photos from around the world and I'm particularly fascinated with Canadian skylines and for what reason I have no idea. Maybe because I've never once visited the country to the north even though the state I live in borders it.

the best way to know which city is which is by the flattness of their landscapes.


Calgary is flat.
Toronto is flatter.
Edmonton is even more flatter.
Winnipeg is totally flat.
Montreal is less flat
Vancouver is full of mountains.

That is surprising! I thought everyone from Minnesota has visited at least once or twice.

Vancouver is flat, but on the rare non-foggy day you can see mountains in the background.


Fixed!
