Old Main

University Park - Old Main

This image was created during late twilight. It was meant to be dramatic framed by the trees and using a low angle to create. The capture is made even more dramatic with the bluish sky and evening lights of Old Main glowing in the darkness. Very popular image and available for $35.00 including shipping (one price) as an 8x10. Print will be shipped in a tube. All my 8x10 prints are also available in large traditional sizes. 11x14, 16x20, 20x24, 24x30, and 30x40.

Sunday Morning

Old Main on Sunday Morning 11/03/13. I awoke on Sunday morning to a blue sky with some clouds with wind, and a rising sun that I knew was "spotlighting" Old Main. I hurried to College Ave. and was not disappointed with the autumn leaves complimenting the scene.

Old Main Street View

Old Main can be photographed many ways and from the street is an excellent example. It offers "framing" by the foreground trees, great view of Old Main itself with the flag poles and flags (blowing in wind) if visible (they are visible in this image, you just have to look again), and a nice sky (preferably blue with some clouds). This is one of my favorite Autumn images. Photographed Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013. You can have an 8x10 of this print for $35 shipped to your house (shipping included).

Old Main in Snow

Old Main, Blue Sky

It is not as easy as you might think to get a good picture of Old Main. I was able to capture this with a crisp blue sky, snow on the ground and most importantly the flags waving, which add so much to an image highlighting Pennsylvania and the USA. Print sells for $35 framed, which includes the shipping. Shipped rolled in a tube. Also sold in traditional sizes as described in the above print.

Old Main December

This beautiful day December 10, 2010 presented an opportunity I could not give up. I was driving on College Ave. and noticed the Main Building (as it was called until the current one was rebuilt in 1929-30) all "lit up" by the early morning sun, the beautiful clouds and the blue sky. It is a keeper.

This image was created on an early November morning. November traditionally has some of the most beautiful skies of the year.
