March Mix 2007

March 14th, 2007

It’s been a while since the last photo series. Here is a review of the past couple months. Tower cranes appear to be a theme.

Wachovia Capitol Center (anyone know if the name will change since the sale?).

The cooling tower of Sharon Harris Nuclear Power Plant as seen from Two Hannover Square.

Spotlights swoosh around inside the RBC Center before a Carolina Hurricanes game.

New perspective on Downtown for me.

Thats all for now!

    Great collection! You are a gifted Photographer! Did you crop the picture of the Hurricanes crowd with the TV cameras on the top of the shot? Just wondering because I am one of the camera operators, and my head just gets cut off. Would love to get a copy of that shot if you indeed croped the picture. Thanks!

    I was waiting, impatiently, for a new collection. You are getting more and more creative each time, but as Downtown Raleigh becomes more diverse – in architecture – and more crowded, you will have a lot more work to do. I loved the new angles you showed us, plus the 13th shot, where you show Glenwood South from the Wachovia Center. This shot will change significantly with the addition of Reynolds Towers 1 & 2, West At North, 630 North, 222 Glenwood, 712 Tucker and The Nash. You will definitely have to go back there and reshoot the photo in a couple of years 😉

    Also, I was anxious to see some shots from a Hurricanes game. They are not doing that good this year, but they still represent our city well and brought Stanley Cup to Raleigh. One of these days I will test my new camera in a sports event.

    Keep up the great work!!!

    I was more than thrilled to see the latest installment of photos when I opened Raleigh Skyline .com. I have been patiently waiting for these pics. I truly enjoyed the new angle shots of downtown. I would love to see the new angle shots of downtown at night. I love the night shot you have in this group of pics. Your pics have given me a greater appreciation of our city and a new outlook of our work in progress. With shots like yours Raleigh will be one of the nations great skyline views especially with the new buildings yet to come to help fill out the skyline. Like Ernest siad, you will definitly have to go back and re-shoot all of these pics as the city continues to grow.

    Plese continue the OUTSTANDING work you’re doing.
    More NIGHT shots!

    Thanks!

    Love the new pics.

    I would like to see the Soleil Tower downtown, with it being Raleigh’s tallest building at 45 stories, oh well! If downtown would just add 2 skyscrapers at least 60 stories in height, and a few highrises between Wachovia Capital and the furure sight of the Reynolds Towers then the skyline would be more complete.

    Please keep the pics comming. I would also like to see more night shots!

    I think you may have found one of raleigh’s new money shots, Raleigh view road, once all downtown construction is complete.

    Keep the pics coming!

    These pics are great. I would love to see some pics of all sides of the new convention center I cant find a good pic of the front of it.
    Amazing work!

    Thank you for taking your time to post these for us. It is most appreciated!

    Great shots! I especially like the new perspective shot. Would love to see sunrise/sunset or stormy weather pictures from that perspective.

    I really like the Sharon Harris shot too.

    It’s a shame you’re having to go to such lengths to watermark your photos now to keep people from using them without permission.

    Great pictures as usual. I was thinking, you should totally make a big collection of photos of Raleigh’s skyline past, like old penny postcard/turn of the century pics all the way to recently. You could also do more creative stuff, like when you put Wachovia tower into that turn of the century photo. That was awesome!

    I absolutely love your pictures of Raleigh! It’s exciting to see the growth and energy of it all. GREAT WORK!

    I would like to add Raleigh based pictures to my website. Do you lease or sale your photos. These are truly great shots.

    Why don’t you post pictures large enough to be use as desktop wallpapers (and aren’t watermarked)?

  14. Dustin says:

    Rob, unfortunately we have an issue of unauthorized use of the photos on the page. From time to time we release special desktop wallpapers. If there is an interest in Raleigh based wallpapers, maybe in the future we can release a few. In order to protect the picture from unauthorized use, the watermarks would still be in place.

    Thanks for your interest.

    We think your photos of the raleigh skyline are awesome! We would like to use the photo of downtown looking north from Moores Square in our church connection guide. Please contact me at my email address if you would be open to allowing us to do so.

    Thanks! You have a wonderful gift!
