Santa Fe Motel

I went out Sunday night looking for an image to capture.  I have been drawn to night photography again which is something that I do periodically.  I really love the feeling of the night.  I am not sure if the feeling is conveyed through the image but for me when I look at it I can feel the crisp air, the quiet and the solitude.

With it being a new moon it complicates night photography because other than artificial light there is nothing really lighting up the scene.  This sign caught my attention and I stopped to capture it.

This was shot with my Nikon D300s and Nikon 50mm F/1.4 lens at 10 secs F/16.

I had an opportunity to do some night exploring with a friend and we were searching for an interesting scene to photograph.  The moon was nowhere to be found and we came upon these wind mills with the lights from a local city lighting up the night sky. 

The shot was a 5 minute exposure at f/5.6 with my Nikon D300s on my Nikon 12-24mm F/4.0 lens.
