The Vimy Memorial Bridge is a stunning architectural landmark for photographers visiting Ottawa, Ontario. It spans Rideau River, connecting Strandherd Drive in Barrhaven and Earl Armstrong Road in Riverside South. The bridge was opened in 2014 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I and the Battle of Vimy Ridge, and it was named in honor of the Canadian soldiers who fought in the battle. Its unique design, with a series of arches and curves, provides a striking backdrop for photography enthusiasts looking to capture the beauty of Ottawa’s landmarks. The location is ideal for symmetrical light trail photography and has nearby parking at a park on the eastern side of the bridge. (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada)
