Amsterdam Skyline Panoramic Picture, Netherlands

Amsterdam Skyline Panoramic Picture, Netherlands

SKU: AMS1
This panoramic photograph of Amsterdam was taken by James Blakeway. It features a panoramic view of a typical street scene in Amsterdam with its many bridges, canals and bicycles. It shows the intersection of the Keizersgracht and Leidsegracht canals. Because property taxes were determined on the width of a home, most of these 17th century houses were built very tall and narrow. Inner staircases were often steep and narrow to maximise living space. Most houses have a large hook high on the outside of the house to more efficiently move household furnishings in and out of the house.

Worldwide Skyline Pictures

Worldwide city skyline panoramas are popular in offices and homes around the world. While you can display a city skyline panorama of your hometown, international skyline pictures can offer a more unique and fun view encouraging discussion and stories of your travels. These images can show landscapes, monuments, or geological features unfamiliar to us at home. They can serve as a memory of where we've traveled, where we've lived, or where we hope to visit.

A panorama of an international city skyline can be one of many methods to make that recent trip an unforgettable one. Traditional photography only encompasses so much of the emotion of a city skyline picture, but a panoramic photo shows us so much more. These images capture a wide view of the skyline from these cities and immediately draw us into an experience even half a world away. The energy and excitement of these cities can be felt once more as if we are really there.

It can be easy to dismiss panoramas of city skylines, but on viewing these images of worldwide skylines we can appreciate the unique demographics and cultures from these locations. We can sense the storied foundations of modern civilization in city skyline pictures from Athens, Greece, showing the Acropolis lit up at night. The bustle and energy of a modern metropolis can be gathered from a city skyline panorama of Hong Kong, with its unique collection of towering skyscrapers. We can also see modern, famous landmarks such as the Tower Bridge in panoramic pictures of London, England.

Different emotional reactions can be felt from these skyline pictures based on the lighting within the shot. A daytime image from a European city may evoke a different response from one shot in Asia, let alone the differences between day and night within the same city. Images of cities surrounded by greenery can feel much different than those surrounded by bodies of water or staggering mountain ranges.

Much more than capturing a moment in time, worldwide skyline panoramic pictures remind us of the histories of these cities and how far mankind has come. We can see differences in art, architecture and design between these city skyline pictures, different cultures and unique systems of transportation.

Whether you are remembering a favorite trip, your hometown from abroad or dreaming of where to travel next, worldwide city skyline pictures are a stunning look at iconic locations around the globe that are sure to be enjoyed for years to come.
