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.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Superbe panorama offert à travers cette réalisation, qui nous permet d'admirer la ville jusqu'à l'horizon.
Les couleurs sont très douces et agréables à contempler.

very nice the panoramic view that presented us here from the Calgary tower during the sunset.I like the clarity of the image,the contrast between the lighted and shadowed places as the endless view of the city.

A great panoramic view of Calgary with lots of intriguing details. I liked the idea of writing that note on the roof of the arts building, sometimes tiny details makes quite big differences. The light and shades together with the well saturated colors in the overall scene looks amazing. A remarkable shot very well done. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes,

this is a marvellous panoramic view with immense depth, fascinating perspective and amazing clarity. I like very much the great variety of themes and details that compose this view, the colours and contrasts and the light. The strong afternoon light is not easy to manage over such a complicated view that includes a great shadowy part on the foreground, but you've done an excellent work. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

a shot with a lot to look at and made all the more interesting by the late sun and wonderful shadows. Love the light and the way it brings out detail and depth as well as adding the warmth to the colours and textures. Very sensual image.
Enjoy your weekend - Brian.

Je viens juste de faire le lien avec le titre. Ce n'est pas vraiment le côté photogénique le plus spectaculaire de la ville de Calgary, mais comme la lumière était de ton côté, pourquoi pas.

The distance between the tower an the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of this area of Calgary. The sunset is giving nice colors to the scene. Have a nice day.

molto bella la panoramica, una grande profondità di campo, le ombre sono molto forti, ma danno una sensazione piacevole.

Hi Chris - Golden colour as far as the eye can see, what a great POV. I love the blue ribbon of river that snakes through the shot and into the depths of the flat landscape. Lovely low light too. Warm regards Rosemary

Great panorama view of Calgary, I like the diagonal line of the blue river, excellent warm light
Cricri (102943) 2012-03-31 10:44
Un POV bien choisi, la vue profonde sur la ville est imprenable, la lumière donne de jolies teintes et un jeu ombre des plus délicat, intéressant de voir une rivière qui serpente dans la ville, belle réalisation

cette photo rend la vallée vraiment brûlante par ses couleurs de feu, un soleil pas très efficace sur cette vue d'une profondeur inouïe.
Une DOF longue, très efficace.
jemaflor (82098) 2012-04-04 10:09
Interesting pov from this buiding, good depth effect with all the lines of the streets, interesting result with this warm light, tfs.

Stunning aerial view of this particular area of the city on the edge of the countryside and the river! Very beautiful light close to sunset, indeed curious that few cars circulate! Excellent definition!
Best regards, Nino.
