B&W Photo Challenge: Avalanche Tunnel

_DSC0157

Cee, who loves hosting and participating in photo challenges, called for geometric shapes for her black & white challenge this week. I immediately thought of this “tunnel” built on the highway going west, beyond Kicking Horse Pass. This is a treacherous pass in the winter due to frequent avalanches, and thus they built these structures on the sides of the mountain to cover the highway. I assume that the snow continues to move down the roof and on down the mountain. I’m not sure I would want to be in this “tunnel” when thousands of pounds of snow was passing overhead. This is a major highway, so needless to say we didn’t stop in the tunnel so I could get a sharp photo – I had to settle for clicking on the go.

    • I feel that way when we used to go through the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel under the Detroit River. Also taking the subways under the water of St. Petersburg, Russia. They were so deep that people read books on the escalators going down to the trains. They went on forever.
