The last handful of days has been excellent in terms of winter photography in Pittsburgh. The snow has been nice and fluffy, with big ol’ flakes that sticky to trees. I’ve had the good fortune of being able to spend time out in it, both over the weekend and this morning, to capture it, and while this morning wasn’t quite as picturesque as Saturday, I still came away with some beautiful views of Pittsburgh in the snow.
Practically every snowfall that we’ve had so far this year, I’ve gone to the North Shore. It provides excellent views of both the city and the bridges, and while I was sure to come away with images that I liked, I thought that I would venture to some of my other favorite areas in the city. My first stop was to Greenfield, where there is one view where the city seems to rise above the houses there. This is a scene that I’ve wanted to capture ever since I discovered it last summer, as the snow covered rooftops added a perfect element. After making one other stop in the Greenfield area, I headed to Schenley Park, however just as I arrived, a little board of snow moved through the city, almost completely obscuring it. Still made for a cool winter shot
Next I made my way into town for a quick stop near CONSOL Energy Center before heading up to Mt. Washington. Much to my chagrin, the platform on the Duquesne Incline station was closed, so I went a little farther down Mt. Washington, near the Point of View statue. After capturing a few images that included the statue, some barges and a couple unique perspectives, I called it a day and headed out of the city. Can’t wait to get out and shoot more winter scenes soon!
