Thanks Bill, today I'm thinking of going out to Red Bud Valley, it is just west of the Port of Catoosa. It is a small park but very pretty.

I remember once upon a time slightly before 2000 I took a Working Vacation to visit my family in
Tulsa Oklahoma. I registered at three or four Local temporary employment agencies , and I believe that it was Manpower that got me my first assignment.

My assignment ran for two to three weeks at The Port Of Tulsa At Catoosa Oklahoma , had a nice
time there , but they aren't promoting the area and getting all of the potential out of that area. Tulsa
should have Luxury Hotels in a buffer zone starting a mile away from the port , and also have the Smaller type River Cruising Vessels " sort of like those vessels used to cruise The European Rivers".

These river going vessels usually only hold 40 to 80 passengers , and could be making port calls in Muskogee , Fort Smith , Little Rock , Memphis , New Orleans , Cincinnati , Louisville and even Minneapolis.

Tulsa skyline a view of the Tulsa skyline driving into Tulsa from the north. I think most people just take it for granite because there in a hurry and don't look up.

Tulsa skyline picture taken from a hill with a long telephoto lens. There is another view of Tulsa closer in but not as good it needs to be a very clear day to get this picture.



Tulsa downtown picture taken from a parking lot the picture is from the east side of Tulsa looking west.

There is a lot of great places to take picture of downtown Tulsa.



Tulsa skyline downtown looking south on a rainy day lots of light on in the city skyline this time of year.

Tulsa skyscrapers not all that tall but look impressive, they look tall when using a wide angle lens.
By John Shoemaker




From that pier is where I take a lot of Tulsa skyline pictures from.





This is the view of Tulsa skyline from the pier. One of the Tulsa skyline views that I think is best.





The Tulsa pedestrian bridge that leads to the pier. Best and easy Tulsa skyline picture to take, tripod recommended.




Tulsa city view at night Tulsa looks great. I have this same view with a plain sky I always keep my camera with me you never know when you are likely to get a great sky. It just cost two dollars to go on top of the parking garage for this view they wont lent me go on top of the hotel where I really want to take the picture from.

In the 1950s, Time magazine dubbed Tulsa "America's Most Beautiful City." These picture show that there is some merit to that statement



This skyline picture was taken from the east side if Tulsa.



Picture of the Tulsa skyline was taken from Maple park just south of the city.




Tulsa skyline picture from the center highway median not a recommended place to take the picture you can get run over.



Tulsa skyline looking south from the river park pedestrian bridge one of the best places to look at the Tulsa skyline.
