I shot this early in the morning before the Stampede fans arrived so as to show the empty stands and tp have the sun illuminating it from this side. I also did another Gigapan about 4 hours later showing the grandstand full of spectators. You can tell it's Calgary by the Husky Tower and the Saddledome. There is also a considerable amount of construction underway downtown including one 58 story office tower.
