Not quite an aerial, but I did get a shot from lake to lake from the top of Campbell Mountain last summer...

Niagara Falls

Photos are by vasiliymeshko from his I went over Niagara Falls! thread - http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=173484

Niagara Falls now has the tallest hotel in the country, the Hilton, which can be seen in these photos. We haven't seen much of the building in the forum so it's nice to finally get a look!

Oh man, I was in niagara falls in December, that building is not much to look at. I do like the fact that niagara falls is getting abit more interesting now with the influx of hotel rooms, there seems to be more of a buzz there now. And as a big city boy, additional buzz is always welcome... makes me feel more at ease.

Some may like this newer aerial photo I found of Halifax on flickr:

I'd love to find one like this that also shows the northern end of the city, where there is a decent amount of new construction..

I messaged Ahmad Tarakol (on flickr - http://www.flickr.com/x/t/0147002/photos/ahmadtawakol/), who took the photo I posted earlier, and he sent me these with permission to post:

You really think Halifax can compete with:





I don't think so, mind you I also think Niagara Falls blows them both away. NF now has seven buildings and towers over 300 feet tall. I think your local boosterism has really distorted your opinion. Halifax has a decent skyline for a city it's size but NF wins this hands down.

I concur. When I saw that pic of Prince Albert, I was like, "Prince Albert?!?!?! WTF?!?!?! You mean that little town in Saskatchewan has that skyline?!?!?!" Holy shit. I guess Brandon, Yellowknife and Moose Jaw aren't the only small Canadian towns with skylines.

It's not Prince Albert. It's Saskatoon.

I think Halifax has a way better skyline than London and Niagara Falls, but that's just me.

I have to say that Saskatoon and Regina impress me the most for smaller cities in Canada!
