One of my favorite photo subjects, The High Level Bridge Lethbridge
The high level bridge in the City of Lethbridge. This rail bridge is as much a part of the landscape of the city as any building or coulee. When I think of Lethbridge other than the wind the bridge is what I think of.
Lethbridge Bridge – the history
The Lethbridge high level bridge, or the Lethbridge viaduct, was constructed between 1907–1909. This train bridge is the largest railway structure in Canada and the largest of its type in the world. Spanning the Oldman river valley the train bridge is a major part of the Lethbridge landscape. I have had the privilege of shooting the bridge in all seasons and in all weather conditions. Well it may be better to photograph the bridge when it is warm out the pictures look a lot better in bad weather. In 2009 the high level bridge was lit for the 100th anniversary and it lit up the river valley for several amazing nights in the years that followed. These are some of my favorite images that I have shot of the bridge over the years. The train bridge is a wonderful sight at any time of the day.
