The Denver skyline is easily one of the most breathtaking views in the state of Colorado. Originally founded in 1858 as a mining town, Denver has grown to currently have a population of over 620,000. In the city's past, residents were exposed to significant immorality as crime bosses once worked alongside police officers and other government officials to control elections and trade.
Denver skyline pictures can show any of the 4 seasons due to the city's extreme range of weather. You can see in Denver skyline pictures that the city has many parks… totaling over 200. Also seen as a stunning natural background in Denver skyline panoramas is the Rocky Mountains, a very important feature of any Denver skyline photograph. Stretching more than 3,000 miles across the western part of North America, the highest point in the Rocky Mountains is Mount Elbert, located in Colorado.
Some of the many buildings that can be seen in a Denver skyline picture are Coors Field, Pepsi Center, Elitch Gardens, Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Colorado’s state capitol, Republic Plaza, and Wells Fargo Center. Coors Field is home to the Colorado Rockies and is known as a "home run field" because of its unusual outfield size and elevation. Pepsi Center, also called “The Can” and located in Denver skyline pictures is home to the Colorado Avalanche, the Denver Nuggets, and the Colorado Mammoth. Pepsi Center hosted the 2001 Stanley Cup Finals, the 2001 NHL All-Star Game, and the 2005 NBA All-Star Game. The Pepsi Center in Denver can also be seen in different areas of pop culture, such as Blades of Glory and South Park.
Elitch Gardens, also displayed in most Denver skyline pictures, is an amusement park open during the summer. At one point, Elitch Gardens was owned by Six Flags, but is now owned by CNL Income Properties. Sports Authority Field is also shown in Denver skyline pictures and is home to the Denver Broncos.
Colorado's state capitol building can also be seen in panoramic pictures of Denver's city skyline, easily located by looking for its gold top. Republic Plaza is the tallest building seen in Denver skyline pictures, standing at 714 feet tall with 56 floors. Mainly used for office space, Republic Plaza was completed in 1984. Wells Fargo Center is another iconic landmark of the Denver city skyline, and is often called the "Cash Register Building" by residents for its appearance.
Denver skyline panoramic pictures have a little for everyone: beautiful trees and mountains, sports arenas, and interesting architecture.
