Photographer's Note

The view from the Calgary Tower at sunset, looking east across the prairies. You can see the long shadow of the tower at left. You can also count the cars in the streets far below, and also spot why this is titled 'Performing Arts Here'. Just right of centre is part of the railway station & goods yards.

The blue river snaking across the city top left and fringed with bright yellow foliage during the Fall, is the Bow River, which originates in the Rocky Mountains further west near Banff. Taken with my old film camera using Fuji 200 ISO film. The observation deck of Calgary Tower is 157.5 metres above street level & the total height is 190.8 metres.
