Late this afternoon, my brother Matt and I ventured into downtown Pittsburgh for an urban landscape photo session at sundown.

Just south of Bridgeville, the first sight of the city peeks over the ridges.

On to the West End Overlook, where we waited for 'Magic Hour', a photographer's term for the period just after sunset when the city lights are glowing under a deep blue twilight sky.

The North Side

Matt, a professional still photographer, has the most extensive and popular Pittsburgh photo collection available, viewable on his web site Pittsburgh Skyline.

Magic hour arrives.

After twilight was over, the last photo stop was the North Side along the Allegheny.

Since these photo series are becoming a regular feature on this blog, I'm trying something new with this one. Instead of posting a large number of small 320-pixel wide images, I'm creating a separate page for the photos with larger dimensions. That will allow for more images at a greater size without introducing a page load time issue for the rest of the blog.
