In the City of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, the Scotiabank Saddledome stands at sunrise against a backdrop of the Calgary Tower and the skyline of high-rise buildings. The city's high-rise buildings are painted a soft pink by the glow of the rising sun.

The Scotiabank Saddledome is located on the grounds of the Calgary Stampede and was constructed in 1983 and is the domicile of the Calgary Flames, Calgary's NHL hockey team. It is owned by the City of Calgary, leased to the Saddledome Foundation and has a seating capacity of 19,289 people. It is best remembered by the world as the venue for hockey and figure skating at the Calgary Olympics in 1988.

The Calgary Tower stands in at 191 meters (626 feet) and is located in downtown in the City of Calgary. A major landmark in the skyline of the City of Calgary, it can be seen from many sites in the city; the view from the observation deck is astounding and the skyline at twilight as the City of Calgary's lights begin to twinkle is especially romantic.

On June 20, 1968, the Calgary Tower (or Husky Tower as it was known then) opened to the public. Near the top, a revolving restaurant, Sky 360, rotates giving the diners a 360 degree view of the City of Calgary. The Tourism Calgary Visitor Centre is located in the base of the Calgary Tower and is open every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
