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.
Two things:
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.
