Urban landscapes: the frigid winter sunset
SKYLINE AT DUSK, CALGARY, ALBERTA
During a recent cold spell, I knew compelling images could be made of this western Canadian city’s skyline after sunset. I had the day off from work, so I had lots of time to find a spot to do close-ups of the office and condo towers, but also have a decent foreground for wider-angle pictures. That’s the frozen Elbow River running diagonally through the bottom half.
The temperature, as I made these pictures, was -23 celsius. I was wearing gloves, but they had to be thin enough to manipulate the camera buttons. After 15 minutes, some fingers were going numb and that’s when I knew I had enough.
Nikon D7100, tripod.
