I hope I'm not violating some site rule by promoting a product (which I have zero involvement or investment in...just a collector), but the folks at Blakeway Panoramas has finally produced an updated Fort Worth panoramic skyline.  I, myself, have asked them to do this several times over many years and am pleased with the location shot they chose.

That is a very nice view.  I don't have a problem with it, since it is only a link to their site and you are not involved with them.

That's a great panorama.  Any guesses on where it was taken?  I also like the NHL Winter Classic photo from this year at the Cotton Bowl.  I had a great time at the game and I'm thinking about getting that one.

The Bridge, the Bridge, the Bridge...the stamp of it upon our image is becoming synonymous with Fort Worth. By the way, Pier 1 Tower is also becoming the same in a like way.

I can't enlarge this very much, myself.  But from what I can tell, it appears to be from the Stayton's roof.  The view is almost identical to NBC5's Skycam from that location.

Channel 5 News at 5:00 usually has a shot of Fort Worth's downtown for the main weather report, then a shot of the Dallas skyline at the closing.  In comparing the two different downtown photos the other day, I have concluded that our skyline may not have as many tall buildings as does Dallas's but our skyline is more colorful.
