Pittsburgh Lights

I have heard that Pittsburgh has less sunny days than Seattle. Everyone thinks that Seattle is pretty gloomy, where would it put Pittsburgh then? We were driving through Pittsburgh and I really wanted to get a shot of it. As you can guess, it was rainy and gloomy and not very pleasant outside. Also, it was right around midnight too. But if one wants to get a photo, one should get a photo, no matter what the outside conditions are out there, right?

So here you go, the first photo from that night. This one is definitely better viewed in higher resolution.

    Great photo! I think Pittsburgh gets a bum rap. It’s really a lovely city, and that view when you emerge from the tunnel, especially at night, is magnificent. Where were you when you shot this?

      Thanks! We were at the top of the mountain near the sculpture – two people, not sure who they are, was too dark and rainy to pay attention to it.

  2. With the conditions you were working under, this is a beautiful shot. I think the haze actually adds to the appeal of the photo. Nice job!

  3. What an amazing shot… Well done!

    I am from Pittsburgh and I think you did a great job capturing the city lights. It looks like you were on top of Mount Washington looking down. Fabulous picture!

    Looks like a photo you’d see in a magazine….or framed on the wall of the Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce! Well done, Dimitrii.

  9. I admire your will… I find myself really lazy in crappy weather, shame on me :(
    Oh great photo by the way :)

    • Dmitrii says:

      I know, it is a bit nuts, but getting those photos in different places is not an easy task, so have to take advantage of opportunities whenever I have one, which does not happen to often.

    A beautiful night shot. I would have been too lazy to get a photo under these circumstances. ;-)

    Beautiful shot of my city. This photo was taken on Mt Washington, a great tourist site to see the city. The statue you were near was the one of George Washington and the Seneca leader Guyasuta. http://francineinretirement.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/img_1516aaa.jpg
    Thanks for sharing our city.

    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
