In an effort to not be so sports centric here on the site I wanted to break out something a little different. Ran across this incredible shot on my hard drive this evening and just had to share. Originally posted to Twitter by Twitter user @seanskisez I don’t even have the words to describe the beauty captured here:
I got some flack about yesterday’s post because it wasn’t truly “Cleveland”. Yes… it was Akron. No, I’m not suggesting Cleveland and Akron are the same. That said, I wanted to get back to something more Cleveland-centric today so here it is. Talk about an amazing shot! I don’t know who snapped this pic but it captures the essence of downtown perfectly.
Saw this beautiful and rather unique Cleveland skyline picture float across my Instagram timeline recently and had to share. Props to Instagram user @ClevelandGram on such a great shot – AMAZING COLORS!!!
Key Tower is the 22nd-tallest in the United States and the 122nd-tallest in the world. The building reaches 57 stories or 947 feet to the top of its spire, and it is visible from up to 20 miles away. The tower contains about 1.5 million square feet of office space.
Got a Cleveland pic you want to share? Upload it here – we’ll give you full credit!
Ran across this beautiful picture of downtown Cleveland and simply had to share it. Not sure who snapped it, but the way it shows Progressive Field, Quicken Loans Arena and the rest of the skyline lit up is awesome.
If this is your photo or you know who took it please let me know so I can give proper credit!
I can’t for the life of me remember where I found this photo so I can’t give credit for it, but I wanted to share it because it’s simply beautiful. It captures Cleveland in the fall / winter (notice the trees with no leaves in the foreground) at that perfect time of dusk.
If you know who’s photo this is (or it’s yours) please let me know so I can give proper credit!
Ran across this beautiful photo a while back and it’s been sitting on my desktop. I can’t remember where I found it so I can’t give proper credit, but certainly will if I’m able to run across its origin.
I ran across this amazing shot on Instagram the other day when scrolling through my timeline. It was posted by the incredibly talented Mike Waterhouse. And while Instagram can make even the most novice picture taker look like a pro, Mike is indeed just that. Dude is AMAZING when he picks up a camera. I found the original, non-Instagrammed image and that’s what you see below. You can follow Mike on Instagram, on Twitter at @MikeWaterhouse or on his blog at http://nakedbagel.com/
It was announced today that the 2013 Cleveland Airshow was being cancelled due to budget constraints. Per the Cleveland National Air Show website: “The 2013 Air Show has been canceled due to the impact of Federal Government Sequestration budget cuts on Department of Defense and Aerospace Industry support of public air shows. Planning and preparation is proceeding for the 2014 Cleveland National Air Show featuring the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. The tentative 2014 dates are August 30 – September 1 (Labor Day Weekend).”
I don’t know about you, but for me if I attended or not, there was just something special about Air Show week in Cleveland. If you were downtown you got to see and hear the planes as they practiced during the week. And there was a certain anticipation in the air when folks started talking Air Show… it meant summer was coming.
Some quick Googling found me this amazing shot taken by John Slater at http://blog.slaterpics.com/ Talk about an incredible shot of the Blue Angels flying by the downtown Cleveland skyline. Here’s hoping that we’ve not seen the last of the Cleveland Air Show.
If there is one building that’s iconic to Cleveland, it’s the Terminal Tower. One of the thing that I LOVE about the Tower is when it’s lit up in the Cleveland night. Throughout the year how it’s lit changes based on the time of year, activities around town, etc. This particular image was snapped during the holidays this past year when the Tower was decked out in traditional Christmas colors. Love it!
What other color schemes have you seen on the Tower?
