Many decades of development is visible in this slice of Calgary’s downtown skyline.
A view of the Sunnyside neighbourhood, looking across the tip of Prince’s Island and the Bow River to downtown Calgary. The Centre Street Bridge is visible in the shadows, centre left. The picture was taken from McHugh Bluff in early January.
Skaters enjoy the view of a giant Christmas tree and the surrounding cityscape at Olympic Plaza in downtown Calgary, earlier this month. Best wishes of the season to all!
The heart of Calgary’s central business district during the blue hour, seen a few days ago. Clockwise from top right: The Bow office building, the double towers of the Suncor Energy Centre, Brookfield Place, Hanover Place (not one of the tall towers, however) and the under-construction Telus Sky.
Also: wide-angle lenses are fun.
From last fall, a rewarding view of downtown Calgary from the upper section of Edworthy Park in Wildwood. I could have got there the easy way, by driving over and parking in the lot by the dog run. Instead, I took the bus to the Parkdale side of the park for a nice afternoon urban hike.
The Bow Building in downtown Calgary seen from a different angle — from my point of view anyhow. Here it is from its east side, flanked by the old downtown fire hall on the left and the North-West Travellers Building on the right. Tucked in behind bottom left is the new Telus Sky building, which is much taller than it appears here!
