Augusta Skyline Panoramic Picture, Georgia

SKU: AUG2
This aerial panorama of Augusta, Georgia, was taken by Christopher Gjevre. Nicknamed "The Garden City," Augusta is the second-largest city and the second-largest metro area in the state after Atlanta. Long ago, the site of Augusta was used by Native Americans as a place to cross the Savannah River, which is partially visible in the upper right corner of the picture. Today, Augusta is best known for hosting one of four major championships in professional golf. The event is scheduled the first full week of April and is the first of the majors to be played each year. Unlike the other major championships, the event is held each year at the same location at a private golf club in the city of Augusta.

Augusta skyline panoramic pictures show a metro area with over half a million residents. What is evident in Augusta skyline pictures, however, is that the city is internationally known for hosting The Masters Tournament in golf. This golf tournament is held each year at the same course and is often prominently featured in pictures of the Augusta skyline.

The area that is now Augusta was used by Native Americans long ago as a region great for fishing and transportation, thanks to the Savannah River, often featured in Augusta skyline pictures. Nicknamed "The Garden City," it is evident in Augusta skyline panoramas that the city and its famous golf course have many award-winning gardens and landscape features. With a humid subtropical climate, Augusta skyline pictures show a city with temperatures that can soar over 100 degrees in the summer. This warm climate surely adds to the beauty found in the gardens of Augusta skyline panoramic pictures.
