By the Dawn’s Early Light- Opening Day

As I was driving to school, crossing the Liberty Bridge, I decided to make a right turn up McArdle  Roadway to Mt. Washington and shoot the city from the Duquesne Incline Platform.  Traffic didn’t seem too thick. I knew I could do it.

Time tight,  the light so nice and the next Opening Day would be a year away.   You saw the view from inside the park on yesterday’s post.

A decision, a moment, you know you’re a photographer.

And as I was standing there I realized I’m witnessing the sun rising, coming up behind the buildings. It didn’t take too long.

I had to wait to shoot the sun as it peeked through.  Not exactly Stonehenge in NYC but a thrill just the same!

PNC Park was a happy place as the Pittsburgh Pirates won in the 10th Inning.  (sorry Chicago John) You can see the Ballpark lights glowing on the left hand side of the photos.

  1. loved these moments…beautiful shots! You took me there during this Tuesday hour at work! Thanks.

  2. My favorite is the first one without the sun but I don’t know why — I just like what I like!

  3. Beautifully shot, Ruth. Your timing was perfect. It was a good, hard-fought game. The kind I don’t mind losing. With the Cubs, it could just as easily have been a blow out. 😉

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
