A defining characteristic of any major city centre, skylines offer a glimpse into the development of a city’s core, typically dotted (or completely dominated) by tall buildings and signature landmarks. Akin to a fingerprint, each skyline is unique; an artificial horizon cast in front of the skies that surround us all. Below you will find a spectacular collection of skylines around the world, including my home town of Toronto above, enjoy!
