Urban landscapes: the morning commute
MEMORIAL DRIVE, CALGARY, ALBERTA
It was so, SO cold, -15C with a windchill making it feel like about -25. But I stuck it out on this pedestrian overpass for nearly a half-hour, making 30-second exposures like this and feeling a giddy surge when I saw the very satisfying images show up in my viewscreen. The most visible tower here is The Bow, with the slightly taller Brookfield Place just behind and to the left. (Here’s another downtown view from before the arrival of Brookfield Place: http://wp.me/p2ccTX-gb).
Nikon D7100, tripod, graduated density (darkening) filter on the ground.
