"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

Full Moon Over Pittsburgh

Not Light Up Night tonight.  My friend Ray called. Said there was a huge orange moon on the horizon but by the time I threw on my jeans, wool sweater, hat and scarf, drove up to Mt. Washington, the moon had risen and appeared off white. Clear, cold and windy, met two couples from Minneapolis on their way to the Macy’s Parade in NYC.  Ray told them how to drive off the mountain to Fathead’s or Primanti’s on Carson Street.  The city lights looked brighter to me than Friday night.  It was an impromptu shooting session but a lot of fun. Posting the Radio Tower on Shiloh Street tomorrow.

Shot from the Duquesne Incline Observation Deck

The temperature dropped that twenty degrees they said it would....brrrrr. A clear night.

    the only part about winter I like are the lights. I can’t stand when they take them down the day after Christmas

    Fabulous shot. The Christmas tree at the point looks like a sailboat.
    Would like to buy a print, please.
    Let me know my options.
