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.

Pittsburgh Diary – Fireworks

Hope my friends in USA had a great time on last week. There was so many fireworks everywhere. If I would say there is a fireworks in every month in Pittsburgh that wouldn’t be wrong. If you miss one fireworks then I am pretty sure you can be able to see fireworks on next month in Pittsburgh. So my new blog is on fireworks. I am going to share some of amazing fireworks pictures I have taken on Yinzburgh i.e. Pittsburgh which is also known as Steelcity.

Undoubtedly Pittsburgh has some amazing spot from where we can take great fireworks pictures along with the Skyline. For below image I choose a parking place in downtown and I waited more than an hour to get this picture. So this is one of my favourite image.

For next images I went to Schenley park. I was thinking to get shots of fireworks from this place since long time. I wasn’t sure if i will get good shots. But I think my decision wasn’t wrong. I really got some great shots from this place too.

So for the last set of fireworks images, I am posting from last week 4th of July celebration. There are few great view points in Pittsburgh from where we can see great fireworks. One of them is West End Bridge. I reach West End Bridge well ahead of time so that I can get nice place to stand and get the shots. Couple of years back when I went to West End Bridge to shot the 4th of July Fireworks there were more crowds and less photog. but this time I have seen its just reverse. That good.

Pittsburgh Diary – Point State Park

Thank you very much to all who like my last post about McConnells Mill State Park . I always try to capture the view of Pittsburgh and its skyline from DIfferent perspective. Point at Point state Park is always a favourite place for me to take photos of skyline during early morning. Here are some of the photos I took during sunrise and sunset at Point.
