Urban landscapes: under the bridge

ST. PATRICK’S ISLAND BRIDGE, CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA

This newly opened bridge didn’t catch my eye until I found out it is illuminated underneath and along both sides of the entire pedestrian path. That grabbed my attention and I spent 45 minutes before dawn capturing various long-exposure views. The 30-second exposure helped smooth out the waters of the Bow River. Nikon D7100, tripod.

  1. Very nice photo. I like the contrasting tones of the bridge and the background. Do you actually know why the bridge is illuminated over the river? It seems a little strange, but there must be a good reason.
