Whenever you get to any height in Jacksonville, one thing always stands out: the tree canopy.

Hope you didn't fall through that parking garage at the VA clinic! I see you also got a great shot of the GREAT WALL OF VETERANS in Jacksonville. Otherwise, the downtown looks fantastic from these directions. Had it not been for the flawless planning that went into the "Great Wall of Veterans" we wouldn't have a thing to gripe about.

Nice shots Lake.  I've always loved the view of the skyline from that direction.

Another great view is from the top of the Mathews Bridge.

Cool... you need to tell me how to get up there... :)
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Historic District truly is pretty. Some more houses to go, and then JEA/Comcast/AT&T re: underground utilities!
