Pittsburgh At Dusk From The Sky

Description: Continuing from yesterday’s take off from Newark Airport, our flight path to LA took us over Pennsylvania and the metropolis of Pittsburgh, quite attractive for tens of thousands of feet in the sky.

For the photo geeks out there, this shot was with a Canon R5 and I was happy to see how well it worked in low light on a moving plane. ISO 4000 for 1/10th of a second with the matched 24-105mm L lens, set to 24mm (and all Image Stabilizations turned on). You might notice a bit of discoloration near the city center caused by reflections. I have since purchased this rubber lens hood to help block out light in these situations.

Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, North America
