Diary from Pittsburgh – Point of View Park

We had some amazing sunrise and sunset during July 4th Weekend. I must say after such a long time I have seen such a great sunrise. I reach the Point of View Park which is on the edge of Mt. Washington (Grandview Avenue at Sweetbriar Street) one hour prior to sunrise. I also use my GoPro to capture the sunrise on timelapse. All these images are digitally blended from multi-exposure images. I used Canon EOS 6D body, Canon EF 16-35mm 2.8L lens and Cokin Graduated Neutral Density Filter to capture these images.

Diary from Ohiopyle – Baughman Rock Overlook

One of the most famous place for hikers, bikers and surfers in South West Pennsylvania is OhioPyle. It’s the Summer paradise. I always love going to ohiopyle, doesn’t matter whether it summer or frozen winter. It’s about 90 minutes drive from Pittsburgh. I started at 4:30 AM from Pittsburgh so that I could be at Baughman Rock Overlook before sunrise. Baughman Rock overlook is situated just outside of Ohiopyle on Sugarloaf Road. This scenic overlook provides a stunning view of the Youghiogheny River Gorge above Ohiopyle. It was nice to see some photographers from Greensburg, PA in the early morning on this isolated place. For few moments, I thought coming up early here is going to be in vein because of overcast. The fellow photographers from Greenburgh they left early thinking that the sun show up. But I decided to wait for few minutes, I know Sun will definitely show up behind the clouds. So the bottom line is “You need a patience”.
