"The longest bridge over the shortest span of water."

"Louis" has told his editor to take a long walk off a short plank over a shark tank. Any connection?

The pictures you take are absolutely breath taking... I live in Regina and I never really looked at it the way you have until now... and I now know for a fact Regina is beautiful.
Something about your pictures make me really happy and feel calm and just gives off a good vibe.
Please never stop taking photos of our beautiful city. You have great talent too.

I love the way you use light in this one - both the sky and the lamps. And you've gotten my curiosity up to learn more about the long bridge over the short water.

Thank you so much for all your comments. And to the anonymous message above I thank you as well. For some reason, Regina is the most underrated city in Canada and truly is a gem on the prairies. Be sure and spread the word about my blog as the more visitors the merrier.

Cheers

How much time to find that particular record to enter in GBR ? Too easy! ; )
Pillars don't need a record to appear in your blog.
Great picture for Sky Watch, you found once again, the good angle to photography the slender lines of that bridge.
