Pittsburgh Skies II [Sky Watch Friday]

By Shattman

   As I mentioned in an earlier panorama posting, Pittsburgh can be a photographer’s heaven. The photo below was shot from atop an open double-decker tour bus as we were crossing a bridge. In the center is the park around which two rivers [Allegheny from the left] and Monongahela from the right] join to form the Ohio River. You can see the fountain in the park for which there is a closeup in my 9/12/13 posting. Considering that the bus was rocking and moving laterally, I am quite pleased with the shot, especially since it was the only one I could get off.
The bottom image of the downtown skyline was taken from the top of Mt. Washington, which we reached by going up the ‘Mon’ Incline, a funicular on which senior citizens rode free of charge. While the cityscape was directly across the river, views up and down the Monongahela were just as spectacular. I’ll post a few of those next week. Pittsburgh Skies II   [Sky Watch Friday]
