Urban landscapes: the bitterly cold skyline

WINTER SKYLINE, CALGARY, ALBERTA

It was -20c when I set up my tripod in Rotary Park, overlooking the gorgeous downtown of this western Canadian city, and made a series of 30-second exposures. The trick was to time the exposures for when the maximum amount of traffic was crossing the Centre Street Bridge, which spans the Bow River
What appears to be the tallest structure in this scene, The Bow on the left side, is actually shorter than Brookfield building, the lower-profile rectangular skyscraper in the centre of the scene. The Brookfield building is the tallest structure in Canada, west of Toronto.
