365 – 92 Under the Blue Sky

Once again I missed publishing my post do tonight your getting another double dose.

This one was from my trip to Mt. Washington.  I really like the light steams that are made from the cars on the roadways.  They just seem to give the city a little more life.

What do you think?

365 – 91 Night Helicopter

Tonight’s photo is a shot from atop Mt. Washington overlooking the beautiful city of Pittsburgh, Pa.  I’ve shot from here dozens of times but every time I am amazed at the view of the city.  It’s really an amazing place to watch the city transform from daylight, to evening, and then night.  It’s as if the city takes on a completely different personality when the sun drops and the lights come on.

I call this photo Night Helicopter as the streak of light on the right side was a helicopter flying by headed towards Oakland.

So for todays photo I wanted to share a place that I have always enjoyed visiting and photographing.  I guess you could say I’m fascinated with all there is to do and see when you’re in the city.  The area where I grew up and still live in today is more rural.  The landscape is covered with farms and woods are more prevalent than towns and buildings. But as a child I can remember making the trip to the city and just being amazed at what there was to see when we visited.

The city that I’m referring to is Pittsburgh, Pa.  and if you ever have the chance to visit I highly recommend checking this city out.  If you come into the city through the Liberty or Ft. Pitt tunnels when you exit the tunnel you are greeted by a beautiful view of the city.  And that’s just the beginning as far as views.  You can travel to Mt. Washington either by car or using one of the two inclines and the view of the city from Mt. Washington are just amazing, which by the way was the inspiration for tonight’s photo.

Now that I’m all grown up and work in the city every day.  You might think that the fascination has worn off.  Well i can say not in the least.  Every morning I enter the city via the Liberty Tunnels and if I time it just right the city is bathed in the light from the sunrise and I think to myself what a beautiful view.  And every night I leave the city in the dark and think to myself the same thing.  So tonight I took a slight detour to Mt. Washington and took a few shots of this fascinating place.  And here is one of them.
