Best Cityscape Photography Spots - Page 4

Richmond City Skyline

There are a number of vantage points for the city skyline all along the southern shore of the James River, but the 9th street bridge is the only dead-on location for a city shot. I have to be honest, I'm a Richmond native and I don't find the skyline to…

Marcy Ave to Manhattan

A fun thing to do is see the view front the front car of a train when it is on one of the elevated outside portions. Follow the above directions and shoot through the window. I use a Ricoh GR but any point and shoot or phone should work also.…

Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf Mountain)

The best time to get to Sugarloaf Mountain is probably summertime - around January/February. Regarding the daytime, I would personally go there only in the late afternoon, ideally approximately 1-2 hours before the sunset. This time allows you for reconnaissance of the spots from which you will take photos. (more…)

Charles River

All along the river there are plenty of nice photographic spots. You can exit the metro at Charles/MGH, walk in the esplanade, cross the river whenever you want. Depending on the season, the river may be entirely frozen, full of boats or rowing crues. (more…)

Kalemegdan

Probably the most important place in Belgrade. A lot of people call it the heart of Belgrade. Large fortress and huge parks with a stunning view at junction of the River Sava and the Danube. This  is the area where various sport, cultural and arts events take place, for all generations of Belgraders and…

Mount Royal

This is the most famous and visited hilltop park in Montreal. Once you have climbed up the 400 stairs, you'll find a very large terrace with an overlook on the cityscape. The belvedere is very large, so finding a spot on the fence is very easy, and tripod are allowed.…

Saint-Jean’s Gate

Quebec city is mostly surrounded by mountains and cliffs, taking a picture with a very low sunset can be challenging. Using the higher view point of the fortification is good way to go. This spot is right downtown in one if the most the visited area of the city, so…

Top of the Rock

As often, things become more interesting with a not so blue sky, when sun is going down...Perfect time at night also, anyway, city view is always stunning! There are some tall glass panels to avoid people falling down, so you need to find ones with enough space between them to have an…

Porta Susa Train Station

I love it. Plenty of lines, steel and glass. But you can't do photos there. Or better, you couldn't :) Be invisible, use little cameras and DON'T use tripods (or policeman will see you). Best hours are all the days, the light is filtered from the glass top. It's huge…

Big Ben

This is a very popular stop to shoot Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. The best time is during the golden hour, but you may need to get there early to get a good spot. Tripods are allowed, but be careful as there's a pavement that runs along the…
