In Turkey the first two numbers of a vehicle license plate belong to a city. Number 34, for example, is for Istanbul. The motorcycle chase in the beginning of the movie takes part in Istanbul (both the Land Rover and the Audi have "34" plates). However, once they come to the bridge where Bond jumps to the train, all the vehicles on the bridge (except the Land Rover) have plates starting with "01", which is the license plate number for the city of Adana, where those scenes were shot.
The opening credits feature Bond periodically shooting at targets, Shanghai dragons, Silva's skull logo, and the Skyfall mansion from which Bond's eyes stare out. At the end of the credits, the sky is seen falling upon the mansion.
