Toronto's CN Tower

The other day I went to Toronto's CN Tower, which was, up until last year, the tallest free standing structure on land ( a lot of specifics :P ), until Burj Dubai surpassed it. You can find more details about its height and the controversy surrounding it on its wiki page here.
I took some picture of the view of Toronto from above for your entertainment and even recorded a short clip that I posted at the bottom of the post, you can see a high resolution version of the images by clicking on them for detail :D .

Whow PH, what fascinating pictures you took, I downloaded the second one, and willing to keep it on my desktop for a while, pictures of high buildings just blow my mind, I hate the stereotype pictures of tents and desert, and hate when ppl connect them to Libya, WE HAVE HIGH BUILDINGS IN LIBYA, not like those, BUT WE HAVE.
[just in case some Ajaneb didnt know].

@ a_akak :

"you never know maybe one day i might visit ;)"

Well if I'm still here when you come, you can come and crash at my place and I'll show you around ;).

@khalid :

"I downloaded the second one, and willing to keep it on my desktop for a while, "

Yes, that's a good picture that one. If you want I can email you it in full resolution ( 2 MB ), it'll look better on the desktop that way :).

salaam

great views, thank you ph

why cant I see the clip? I tried different computers but still nothing, something else ph, your page takes long to load and usually I get a message saying error on page!

"great views, thank you ph"

you're welcome.

"why cant I see the clip? I tried different computers but still nothing, something else ph, your page takes long to load and usually I get a message saying error on page!"

Thanks for telling me about it I hadn't noticed it. I found the error and will fix it as soon as possile; but this error is confined to IE so if you use firefox you can see the video.
The delay is also caused by the error and firefox is faster :P.
Should I mention I'm making a post reviewing the new firefox browser ? :D.

Thanks for the heads up and I'll get to it as soon as possible.

salaam

Loved the Pic's . Never saw Toronto so differently before .You should have included that run way in the "flying pet peeves" for ur previous post lol ! Scary !Love the jazz from Music Lover too . Used to play sax , back in the day .

PH said...

Glad you enjoyed the pic's, cool runway isn't it. I actually got to watch a plane take off from it.
I'm not into sax that much and the one music lover posted wasn't my taste :P.

salaam

You're welcome, as for being frightened, no not from that position but there is a glass floor that you can stand on that is frightening, I just didn't take a photo of it.
