A Photo a Week Challenge: Under the Lights

A Photo a Week Challenge at https://nadiamerrillphotography.wordpress.com.  This week: Natural Monuments (https://nadiamerrillphotography.wordpress.com/2016/08/11/a-photo-a-week-challenge-under-the-lights/)

“In a new post created for this challenge, share a photo or two of two or three tricky lighting situations.”

I love taking pictures at night – more than taking pictures when it’s sunny out.  I still haven’t figured out how to make sunny work for some shots.  But night?  They can be fun and mysterious even when you can’t really see what’s going on!!

I don’t tend to use flash in the dark to maintain the atmosphere, but I do pump up the ISO and lower the old shutter speed.

Here are a few photos I took one night when we walked out on the breakwater:
