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.

Sunset at Lake Erie

On a sunny summer weekend I have decided to drive towards North Western Pennsylvania, destination unknown. I was trying to get some good sunset. Western Pennsylvania has three large lakes, Lake Arthur, Pymatuning lake and Lake Erie. I been to Lake Arthur and Pymatuning lake before. But never been to Lake Erie during sunset time. After driving 2 hrs 30 mins from Pittsburgh I reached Presque Isle. Presque Isle is an arching sandy peninsula that juts into Lake Erie. I reached Presque Isle around 6 PM and I have to wait another 2 hrs for sunset.

Perry Monument on Presque Isle

After spending some times on The Perry Monument on Presque Isle, I am off to the beach side. It has 13 beaches for swimming and a marina. Below images is my personal favorite which I have taken at beach 7.

Once I reached in the beach I could hardly see any clouds. Without clouds suset won’t be dramatic. But luckily I got some clouds during sunset.

Pymatuning Lake

I always love taking landscape photos either in the early in the morning or sunset time. On weekend I have decided to go Pymatuning Lake which is an hour drive from Pittsburgh to get some photos during sunset time. Pymatuning Lake is a man-made lake in Crawford County, Pennsylvania and Ashtabula County, Ohio in the United States, on land that was once a very large swamp.
