A winter walk on the Burrard Bridge during ‘Golden Hour’ in Vancouver, Canada.
Walking along the Burrard Bridge looking through an arch over the sidewalk.Looking up at the bridge struts.
Looking out the bars at the sun setting in the southwest. Long shot of the marina looking northwest from the bridge. Medium shot of the marina.
Looking straight down from the bridge at the boats in the marina below. Next up were the trees on a small piece of half-wild land off in the distance. What I found interesting here is how, even though the trees are probably all Alder, their colour changed as I moved along the bridge. The first view was of black trees edged in red light.Then they became grey trees backdropped by glass high-rises with gold highlights. Along the inner section of wild land the trees now appeared white, something to do with the viewing angle maybe?More of the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: One Subject Three Ways.
Great perspectives. Archway framing is always a fave.
I love arches too – I actually didn’t see the arch shot until I put the camera up and there it was, a perfect framing of a framing – sometimes what you see on the camera is not what you see when you’re just looking…
Great images for this challenge.
Thank you – it was a situation where I worked the shots just because of the light and was surprised at the results…
Hi Elizabeth. Wow! That first photo of Burrard grabbed my attention and wouldn’t let go!! Gorgeous. It puts my photos of this bridge to shame! I love your take on the bridge and all the variations along the way. Great post!
The light was glorious for all of the 9 minutes it took me to get over that part of the bridge. At the moment I am addicted to the little ferries that take you back and forth across the water but I see I shall have to get back to taking the longer route – it gives such a completely different perspective…
You are so funny. 9 minutes! That sounds like Vancouver! When the sun does come out, it’s glorious, isn’t it? Both routes are great. And yes, a very different perspective.
Very interesting Elizabeth. For me the trees were the star although the bridge is wonderful (especially the archway). but I just loved the way the trees changed color as you advanced. Nature’s magic!
The tree photos took place a minute apart – sort of walk, snap, walk, snap, walk, snap. I’m still very curious about why the tree’s appearance changed so much when the viewing angle changed so minutely – but right now I’m happy with ‘nature’s magic’!
Magic. Very well done, Elizabeth – favourites are the bridge shots.
I had forgotten how there was such a different perspective to walking over a bridge as opposed to cruising underneath it – I see I will have to do this more often…
The first ones are truly mesmerizing, in every possible way. Very lovely captures 🙂
