19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Crane Lifting a Pink Moon

I shot this on my phone from the balcony of my apartment in Pittsburgh just after sunrise on April 27, 2021. The pink moon from the night before was setting. The crane is being used in the construction of University of Pittsburgh's "5000 Baum Project to Accelerate Cancer, Transplant, Immunotherapy Innovations". The University will renovate the century-old former Ford Motor Company assembly plant and showroom to transform it into a world-class space for labs, offices, startup companies and industry partners, aiming to attract the world’s best scholars and students.
