Pittsburgh has some great photo opportunities!  So many bridges and historical sights.  The University of Pittsburgh adds to this list.  This photo is an infrared of the Cathedral of Learning at the University Campus.

Here is some info from the web: The Cathedral of Learning, a Pittsburgh landmark listed in the National Register of Historic Places, is the centerpiece of the University of Pittsburgh’s main campus in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States. Standing at 535 feet the 42-story Late Gothic Revival Cathedral is the tallest educational building in the Western hemisphere and the second tallest university building (fourth tallest educationally-purposed building) in the world. The Cathedral of Learning was commissioned in 1921 and ground was broken in 1926. The first class was held in the building in 1931 prior to its final completion in 1937. The Cathedral is steel frame structure overlaid withIndiana limestone and contains more than 2,000 rooms and 2,529 windows. An impressive scenic building, it is often used by the University in photographs, postcards, and other advertisements.

Looking at this picture…looks like the sky is the limit with learning here in Pittsburgh!!  =) Hope you enjoy the IR!
