The Calgary Tower was once the tallest building in Calgary. These days it's a bit of a midget!
The Calgary Tower is the red mushroom on a stick that you can see reflected in the blue glass building. It still offers great views of the city from the top and on special occasions (like New Years Eve) there's a gas flame on the top that can be lit to provide a brilliant flare against the night sky.
The Canadian Pacific Rail line runs at the base of the tower...those round tankers are carrying grain...at least the red one is. I'm not sure about the rest!
