Urban landscapes: Returning to the river

STREAM FLOWING INTO THE BOW RIVER, CALGARY, ALBERTA

This stream is actually part of the river; the water is diverted as it flows around Prince’s Island, an oasis on the north side of this western Canadian city’s downtown core.
I was there on a cold November morning and was delighted to find this combination of flowing water, river and the beautifully lit Centre Street Bridge.
I was on the other side of the creek when I realized there was a great picture to be had, so I darted across the water (avoiding getting a ‘soaker’ – yay!) and made a ciruitous route to this perspective, all the ensure my snowy footprints would not be in the photo.
