Night lights


A week ago today I was in Kentucky, just south of Cincinnati, OH, at the Creation Museum.  There they still had their Christmas decorations up and my wife and I were able to be there late at night.  It was wonderful.  There were so many colorful and new lights there.  There was also a live nativity there.  This picture is of a gazebo type building that is built overhanging a large pond at the museum. 
Water makes great ways to make cool photos with reflections.  Night pictures may tend to be hard to take because many times you won’t see the lights well or they will be all blurry, even if your camera has night mode.  To try to remedy this you must keep your camera still for a long period of time.  This can be accomplished via a tripod, holding it on your shoulder, or resting it on something like a stone fence or a stump.  Your creativity is your only hindrance.
This picture was taken with my Nikon d3100 without a flash on night mode on my camera about 200 feet away.  If you look very closely you can see people in between the arches in the gazebo.  There was virtually no editing to this picture.
