Philadelphia, PA Skyline Pictures

What isn't easily guessed by looking at Philadelphia skyline pictures is that it's the largest city in Pennsylvania, with a population of over one and a half million. The significant historical contributions and events which led to the founding of the U.S. also cannot be guessed by glancing at a Philadelphia city skyline picture. However, the city offers unique and iconic views which make it a perfect subject for beautiful city skyline photography.

Start with a momentary glance at the beautiful mountain range-like appearance. Let your mind wander through the vicissitudes of history that Philadelphia skyline pictures depict focally around the city that was there when it all began. While you can’t see the iconic symbol of the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia Skyline Pictures, in a simple statement, what does stand out about Philadelphia skyline photos is the history.

Many Philadelphia skyline pictures feature the Delaware River and the gorgeous Ben Franklin Bridge. Unless you’re a geologist or civil engineer, the history of the city lies much deeper than these two landmarks. Centering many Philadelphia skyline pictures is Liberty Place. Brandishing the charts as the 16th tallest skyscraper in the United States, it's only second in Philadelphia skyline pictures to Comcast Center, about 30 feet taller. Liberty Place is actually two buildings in Philadelphia skyline pictures, and is a breathtaking structure of both contemporary and historical note. It was the first building to break the "Gentlemen's Agreement". If the informal restraint were to have been kept in place, the Philadelphia skyline pictures we enjoy today would be representing the William Penn statue atop City Hall as the tallest structure in the city.

Philadelphia skyline pictures almost ubiquitously have a summit-like appearance to their conglomeration. It's easy enough to see in any almost any Philadelphia skyline picture that the city's planning isn't happenstance. The climate in Philadelphia is as wide and varied as its history, allowing for a wide variety of lighting and atmospheric shifts seen in Philadelphia skyline panoramas.

Panoramic pictures of Philadelphia showcase more than just the weather: the city's architecture dates back to the foundation of the United States. Considering the age of the city, it's quite interesting to note that Philadelphia skyline pictures do not showcase much in the way of glass structures. Georgian-era architecture, like Independence Hall, and even riverbank constructions like the flagship of Admiral Dewey can be seen in Philadelphia skyline pictures. Panoramas of this city offer more in the way of history than most other locales in the U.S. can hope to achieve.
