Hey guys, you all surely know, that one of the best views of skyline is when you´re driving down the highway and suddenly the skyline appears in front of you, so I have started this thread in order to we can share this kind of photos.:)
Post here your pics or pics which you´ve found on the internet( but do not forget to provide source:nuts:). Doesn´t matter if its small skyline or big skyline but it should somewhere around highway. ;)
Here are some examples, I´m sure you´ll find better. :eek:kay:

yes! can't believe I never thought of this. I love seeing the skylines 'emerge' into view when on highways. It's always so exciting, grand and impressive

Skyline Boulevard is an almost empty road just a few miles from one of the busiest and most densely populated areas in the United States.
Most people living in the San Francisco Bay area, also known as Silicon Valley, are probably not even aware of the Skyline Boulevard, a scenic byway running along the mountain ridge to the west of the valley. Whenever I am in need for a quick escape but do not have much time, I will take a short vacation on Skyline Boulevard. I will hop into my Mustang Convertible, open up the roof and drive up here for a tranquil escape from the hectic live of the Silicon Valley. The curvy road, meandering along the crest of the mountains offers spectacular views and is a haven for motor bikers and cyclists alike. You can view the sunset over the mountains or see the lights of the valley below come to live.

Although Skyline Blvd may not be the most famous scenic route, it is one of my favorites, because it is not as crowded as Highway 1. Here you can still find some solitude after straying away from the main route. I have parked my car a few miles off 35 with the top down and enjoyed the sunset for well over an hour without meeting another soul.
During the summer months, fog usually starts rolling in the afternoon. It engulfs most of the north peninsula (including San Francisco).
I love the fog since it amplifies the feeling of isolation and dampens the sounds of nearby motorists.

when we come back to the city from an escape trip, we see skyline at the end of the road. that's a wonderful feeling, just like there's a loved one waiting home for us :)
