Urban landscapes: the stunning sunrise
A HOLE IN THE CLOUDS, CALGARY, ALBERTA
The day was supposed to be cloudy, but I was itching to make some pictures, so I ventured out anyway. This was my reward — 20 minutes of amaaaaaaazing dawn light striking the skyline of this western Canadian city.
See the tower under construction? That’s Telus Sky and it’s the reason I avoid photographing skylines when something major is being built. After all, as soon as the structure is finished, any pictures I’ve made would be instantly dated. But how could I say no to capturing this glorious spring light?
Nikon D7100, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky and buildings.
