Lions Gate Bridge, Vancouver BC

Enough with trying to capture flying, flaring, and diving birds.  Let’s go with something completely different.  But what?

I know!  A bridge.

Here’s my first decent night shot.

    Lions Gate Bridge has always struck me as a beautiful bridge, and not just because it launches from Prospect Point. But for many years, it seemed to be an anachronism — beauty is not what I would associate with most bridges built during the last half of the 20th Century. But perhaps esthetics are coming back in. The Alex Fraser Bridge in Vancouver, the new Port Mann bridge further up the TransCanada, use cables in ways that suggest the architect actually considered what kind of arrangement could look beautiful (as contrasted with, say, the Ironworkers Bridge to North Vancouver, or the Confederation Bridge to PEI).

      Jim – Yes, cable-stayed bridges can be amazingly beautiful, as well as awe-inspiring. I have the Ironworkers bridge on my list to visit – maybe I’ll move it down that list a bit! 🙂
