The Peace Bridge in Calgary

Free Desktop Wallpaper

As a little bonus for my friends and followers every month I provide a free image for use as your desktop background wallpaper on your computer. Each beautiful photo is a picture that I have created and it always includes a calendar overlay for the month. I know that I’m always looking for a calendar and having one on my desktop is very convenient!

This months wallpaper image features an abstract image of the beautiful new pedestrian bridge over the Bow River in Calgary. Although officially known as the “Peace Bridge” it has been anything but peaceful. Most Calgarians fall into two camps in discussions about this bridge; they either love the bridge for it’s unique beauty or they hate it because it the project to build it cost $25 million that could have been spent in many other ways.

Personally I’m very interested in the photography opportunities that the unique bridge presents (it looks amazing at night!), but rather disturbed that it doesn’t actually go anywhere… There is no access to the bridge from the North side of Memorial Drive (on the North side of the river). Therefore anyone using the bridge has to walk (or cycle) along the existing pathway to access points at one of the other bridges to the East or West of the new bridge. It doesn’t make much sense.

But it is very beautiful!
