Urban landscapes: take a winter walk on this bridge
ELBOW RIVER PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE, CALGARY, ALBERTA
Even this late in winter, snowy and cold conditions can make it seem like a January deep freeze. Nevertheless, I ventured out before sunrise to find this beautifully lit walkway over the frozen river just before it flows into the Bow River east of the downtown skyline.
1. Given the dim illumination, a long exposure was needed to gather enough light into the camera.
2. I intentionally twisted the camera to tilt the horizon, because diagonal lines are often more visually dynamic.

A unique angle and dramatic photo, Frank. And your intrepid photographing nature, getting out before sunrise in freezing conditions, is impressive.
