Urban landscapes: the illuminated bridge

LANGEVIN/RECONCILIATION BRIDGE, CALGARY, ALBERTA

The city started lighting up this old bridge a few years ago and the results, as you can see, are nirvana for architectural photographers. This is a 30-second exposure made about an 45 minutes before sunrise.
The neat thing is, the lights on this bridge (over the Bow River, which flows out of the Rocky Mountains) change colour so if you don’t especially care for the picture you’ve just made, wait a few minutes and try again.
Nikon D90, tripod.
