I forgot that the Weekly Photo Challenge had been moved from Friday to Wednesday – but apparently it is “open all week” so here is my contribution.

The location is one of the former railway trestles across the Myra Canyon near Kelowna BC. After the tracks were removed the right of way became a long distance walking/cycling trail. The picture was taken around midday so the length of the shadow is not produced by early or late sunshine but the height of the trestle. It is indeed a long way down.

They have their own blog too

Looking through some of the other submissions, I noticed that other people post more than one picture, and my flickr stream has more than one candidate.

The first is more recent, from last year in Chicago

This one is from 2012: the Roosevelt Island Tram in New York City – and the one below is the same year but closer to home
