In July, 2011, I visited family in Lethbridge and headed down to the High Level Bridge to see what types of photos I could take. It was difficult for me because I was very immersed in learning about macro shots and I had no experience taking shots of structures. I keep reflecting back to these photos though because I was trying to capture the incredible amount of work that was done to construct this bridge.

The bridge was constructed between 1907-1909. It took a 100 man crew to erect the steel. It is the largest railway structure in Canada and is still in use today.

It is 1,623.86 metres long and 95.7 metres high above a river bed.
