The Two Skylines

About This Photo Share Purchase This Photo
  • Location: Riverside, Illinois
  • Helicopter: Rotorzen

I love this image of Riverside (and Chicago).  I think this is the best aerial shot I got of Riverside.  And what makes it for me is the fact that the size of the Riverside skyline and the size of the Chicago skyline are almost exactly the same.  The size of the water tower in Riverside and the Sears (Willis) Tower are within a few pixels of each other.  Apparently 108 stories, 11 miles away is the same in photo as 6 stories 1 mile away.

As an aside, I also find it pretty amazing that outside of MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn (the red and yellow brick building to the far right of the photo) there are almost no buildings that pop up above the tree line.
