Urban Landscapes: Peace Bridge

PEACE BRIDGE, CALGARY, ALBERTA

Calgary’s newest architectural marvel opened yesterday, after many controversial and expensive delays, and I went there before sunrise today to make photographs. It turned out to be every bit as spectacular a subject as I hoped for; I spent almost an hour “working” the pedestrian/cyclist bridge (which spans the Bow River) from both ends and in the middle, going with a variety of wide-angle and telephoto views, plus trying some long exposure zooming in-and-outs. Almost everything I tried turned out brilliant – a credit more to architect Santiago Calatrava than my skills. (I photographed one of his other Canadian creations, Brookfield Place in Toronto. That photo is also on this website.) Nikon D90, 18-55 mm. lens, tripod.
