Calgary’s Downtown Core at Sunset

I was out on a windy hill east of Calgary’s downtown core on Monday night photographing the city center at sunset. There were some great clouds that soaked up the light to create some beautiful hues that reflected into the buildings. As the sun fell, stray light would find a clear patch through the clouds and then bounce around the glass on the buildings. A beautiful scene to photograph, here are a few from the evening.

Although it is no longer the tallest building along the skyline, the Calgary Tower is still an icon for the city.  This is a different look at the building as dusk quickly advanced.

A view of the whole downtown as the sunlight waned.

  2. Nice shots, just dark enough without being too dark.

    • Thank you – always a balancing act while out photographing and back at the studio. I’m glad you like where I settled on.
