I’m starting to love photographing at night.

There is an amazing peace standing out there in the quiet with no one else around and only a faint light from the moon or a nearby lamppost.  I love experimenting with shutter speeds to get just the right amount of color in the shot or movement.

It takes a good knowledge of manual photography, an even better tripod, and lots of patience and imagination!  Tonight it was cloudy and dark, but leaving the shutter open for 30 seconds brought about a beautiful orange glow.

On the last two shots, I moved my lens in and out while keeping the shutter open for 20 seconds.
