06-DEC-2003 Ron Lutz 2nd


Pittsburgh, PA USA

The Cathedral of Learning stretches to the sky in all it's Gothic glory over this little frontier cabin from the days when this was Fort Pitt and the French & Indian War was raging.

The funny thing about this shot was that right after snapping it, a huge ball of snow fell out of the trees and hit me on the head! LOL

I uploaded 3 other photos to my Around Oakland gallery I took this morning.

Canon EOS 10D ,Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
1/1500s f/4.0 at 17.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

I was just pointing out this cabin to a friend the other day and never noticed the towering cathedral behind it. I love the contrast, its everywhere in this great city.

Wonderful! I love the brilliant blue sky, the icy trees against it and the modern against the old fashioned. Exceptional!

WOW... So terrific! The snow covered branches are wonderful and the old/new is just perfect! Nice job!

Your investment in L glass is paying off !
Great angle - very fine picture.

What an incredible image! The perspective, the snow in the trees, and the azure blue sky is unbelievable enough - but the juxtaposition of those two subjects is beyond all reason! WOW - this is one of those shots that speaks volumes, Ron. Great eye - and stellar capture! :)
