Urban landscapes: night in the city
SUNCOR ENERGY CENTRE AND THE BOW, CALGARY, ALBERTA
I purposely went to the top of the Calgary tower just as winter sun was setting. I knew I could get great views of fully lit skyscrapers and I was right.
The challenge turned out to be window reflections from the lights behind me. Sometimes I contorted myself crazily to block the reflections for scenes like this. BTW, when I made this photo, The Bow was the highest skyscraper in Canada west of Toronto. It’s since been surpassed by another tower nearby.
Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.

Very beautifully vivid!
Nicely done Frank!!
An excellent night shot, captured at the right time, when there is still a bit of blue in the sky. Such a bustling city your have portrayed.
Wow…This one is one of the best. Very nice…
