“I have been trying all summer to get a good picture of a sunset in Pittsburgh. Every time I tried, it ended up fizzling out. I found this view of the stadium a few weeks before I captured the image pictured. I love the way the Roberto Clemente Bridge passes in front of PNC Park. The sunset behind makes the stadium look like it is on fire — just like the Pirates were that night defeating the Reds 14 to 0! And, what an evening it was. Josh Bell hit RBI number 100 for the year and Colin Moran hit a grand slam homerun! This picture certainly proves that Pittsburgh is not the smoky city of the past but a thriving beautify city.”

Chris Klein roots are from Pittsburgh, and his grandmother was born in Castle Shannon in the early 1900’s. Pittsburgh in the early 20th Century, while booming and bustling, was a dirty place. Not so today! Pittsburgh moved him. He loves to capture beauty in unique ways and was inspired to create Pittsburgh Beautiful as a way to share that with everyone.
