Wow!  Just when we think we've seen it all and gotten a bit jaded, we're dazzled once again by Metro Jacksonville!  Thanks so much!

Some of that looks like Matt BlueJay's photography, he's always getting unique shots of the skyline.

You can only take so many pics of the skyline from Friendship Fountain. When I lived at 11E, it was always nice to get up on the rooftop and take in the view from a different perspective.  Oh and btw, I like the article tagline said "not necessarily accessible by the general public" haha.

These are awesome!! I agree that the Friendship Fountain vantage point can get a little played out.  I love the view from the commodore point expressway looking west, the riverwalk by FIS looking east, and the view from I-95 as you pass over the railroad tracks & Bay Street.

These are some awesome shots. Nice work!
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

The worst view is from the Lone Sailor looking at the Northbank Skyline; The disappearing tallest building in Jax, yay we are in the eighties!!!

 ;) Jacksonville has just enough of a skyline to show that we do have serious businesses here but the view is not overwhelmed by buildings and urban sprawl. Sweet is what I called my Florida home here in the dirty-dirty south, Duval, 904 y'all
These are the Interwebs? Really? Where is the beer then?
