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

Red Sky in Morning from the Birmingham Bridge

Left the house a bit earlier to get to the other side of the city this morning. As I hit the Birmingham Bridge I saw the sunrise.  I pulled to the edge, hit the flashers again and sat quietly, and shot the sky over a few minutes time.  The other direction I could see cars on the Parkway with their headlights on.  A nice way to start the day. But the Red Sky,Sailors Take Warning turned out true as it is snowing (about 3 inches so far) and already they have called for a two hour delay at school.  The dark band along the bottom of the photo is the Jersey Barrier. Unretouched photograph!

    I used to cross the Ohio River on my way to work in Louisville, Kentucky and saw many beautiful skies – never been a photographer so never got a picture. This one is just breathtaking – thanks for sharing!

    Ruth – That’s a terrific photo. Thanks! I’ve subscribed to your blog and really enjoy seeing your Pittsburgh photos. I live in California now, however I spent the first 22 years of my life in Pittsburgh, and I really look forward to seeing your excellent photos every day. By the way, here’s the answer to the question about why it’s called a “Jersey barrier”:
