Olympic Stadium

I have spent the last week or so watching the Olympics. I just love the speed skating events and the hockey games!!!  Montreal got the Olympics in 1976... 

This is a view of our Olympic Stadium from across the St-Lawrence River.  We used to have a baseball team (the Expos) that played there after the Stadium was constructed... The Expos are now the Washington Nationals... The Stadium is now used for various concerts and events.

I like the way you've framed this shot. Neat architecture on that stadium. I've really enjoyed watching the Olympics; they're right in my backyard, so to speak, but I have a better view on TV!

That is a cool looking building, love all the snow and ice in the foreground too! I haven't watched much of the Olympics this time around, but totally enjoyed the men's half-pipe. :)

How fortunate to be so close to an Olympic stadium - whether being used for Olympics or other events. Beautiful facility.

How lucky to have the olympics in your backyard. We have been staying up way too late watching them every night! :) Nice shot.
