Rural landscapes: the river and the bridge

OLDMAN RIVER AND HIGH LEVEL BRIDGE, LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA

The setting for this western Canadian city of almost 100,000 is quite spectacular. The Oldman River valley is truly breathtaking, especially in winter, and there are many glorious viewpoints to see it and the High Level Bridge. Completed in 1909, it’s the longest and highest steel trestle bridge in North America. I found this spot to put the bridge into a larger setting.
