Urban landscapes: receding lines
THE PEACE BRIDGE, CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA
I’ve photographed this wonderous Santiago Calatrava creation before (you can see those here: http://wp.me/p2ccTX-5J and http://wp.me/p2ccTX-5G) but it was worth another try with the camera when I was nearby recently.
This is a controversial bridge; it cost $25 million CDN and wasn’t put out to tender for construction. But since opening just a few years ago, it’s become one of the city’s most popular ways to cross over the Bow River. Nikon D7100, tripod.

The piece bridge always seems to offer good photo opportunities. I like the angle you’ve chosen. Great picture!
Thanks for the kind words! 🙂
LOVE this piece, Frank, I love that vanishing point and all the natural geometry of the bridge as seen in your composition!
Thank you! Gotta love it when amazing architecture lays out great photo opps. 🙂
