A view from the top of Queen's Park and looking NE across the city of Glasgow with it's many HR flats........Glasgow Cathedral is the green roofed building at centre.
This is panoramic image from two images stitched together in Photoshop, and was taken on a hot slightly hazy summer day recently.

My thanks as ever for all the comments on Clematic Duo and with special thanks to Lynne {LynneJoyce}, Netta {netta1234}, Trev {TrevBatWCC}, Ann {plucky filly} and Ju {JuBarney} for their User Awards.

Ronnie.

PS. ...... for those who may be interested, the two large near flats are in the Gorbals area, the red and white ones lie north of the river between Royston Road and Charles Street and the multicoloured complex far right are the Red Road flats: the Campsie Hills lie in the b/g ........ R.

Didn't realise Glasgow looked so colourful, Ronnie TongueGrin. The panorama presentation has the effect (on my monitor) of almost putting you in the scene.

Urban sprawl makes for great imagery, and this is just another point in fact. There is both clarity and detail in-depth thanks to your chosen aperture , however at the same time the light of sight has been reduced dramatically with the 70-300mm lens. An unusual choice for this particular genre, yet at the same time it has allowed one to wander without wandering to far, and getting swamped up within the image.

A great overview of Glasgow and out to the hills beyond.
I think it is well to remember that there are a great many parks within Glasgow
too (how many is it Ronnie ?).
It is a great city for shops and restaurants but I must admit I wouldn't like to live
in a high rise flat.

Kate, in answer to your question, there are over 70 public parks within the city boundaries, about 18 major ones, and many smaller.
The larger ones are Alexandra Park, Auchinlea Park, Bellahouston Park, Botanic Gardens, Darnley Mill Park, Dawsholm Park, Glasgow Green, Hogganfield Park, Kelvingrove Park, Linn Park, Pollok Country Park, Queen's Park, Ruchhill Park, Springburn Park, Tollcross Park and Victoria Park.

No matter what pretty colours they paint the towers, they are still not the ideal place to live. Schemies and areas like the Gorbals had (still have?) a reputation that lingers and is hard to be quit...

Good stitching, Ronnie, as Eric said to Ernie...you can't see the join.Grin

Thought I recognised my hometown skyline here Ronnie. Had a great time looking to see what I recognised - not too much I hasten to add. Did pick out the cathedral and Glasgow Royal. The Red Road flats used to be the highest in Europe but believe that some were taken down earlier this year. 30 storeys high - wouldn't fancy living in that. A wee bit further along to the left and you would have included where I was brought up. Fly over now right over my old street.
Lovely piece of work.
