    It’s over a year since we last did ‘low light’, and there were some wonderful posts then, so I’m looking forward to see what you all come up with this year!

      Such a great choice of exposure here! Dark but definitely not too dark.

      I love this.  I can’t understand why all the chairs are empty. I would chose a front row seat and enjoy every last ray of that sunset.

        Thanks to all for your comments. The chairs were empty because a thunderstorm had just passed by. Only a few people were out, but the sunset was spectacular!

    This dramatic cloud formation is part of tropical storm Barry’s outer bands. It shielded our eyes from the setting sun as we were driving west. I had my husband pull over so I could jump out and take pictures with my phone.

      Very nice, David, taken from the South Bank, which bridge?  My wife and I will be there in 14 days time, for six nights.  Have only ever had two nights in Brisbane before we headed up to Noosaville (or was it Cairns that time?).  We loved the architecture, mix of old and new.  Had a great walk down the South Bank, climbers on the banks, next to the pathway with lights, crampons and pitons, families, couples, strolling.  Got a ferry back.  Keen to experience more!

      Keen to know which settings to use?  Guess, I would need to take a tripod, a monopod would probably not cut it?

        Thanks Jim. This is the Story Bridge taken from Wilson’s Lookout, looking back towards the CBD.

        This was a 2 second exposure @ f;4.5. A tripod would definitely be preferable. I can loan you one for your visit if you like. I have a few…

        Southbank is a lovely area.

        If you have time and would like to catch up over a coffee (or other beverage) let me know.

      Very mysterious, Mistyisle. And I learned something new, as I had never heard of this geothermal park. Looks like an interesting place to visit.

        Thanks Leanne, you do realise that this park is in New Zealand?  Of all the great places to visit here, this is probably the one most missed, probably because it is a bit off the beaten track for those on a tight time schedule.  However it is very unique, interesting and has marvellous boardwalks to go all the way around – takes a good 1 1/2 hours and lots of photographic opportunities.  My family and I love it!  It is quite magical.

          I didn’t know it was in NZ until I looked it up. Lots of hidden treasures there. Definitely on my bucket list!

    This is  an updated version of a pic I posted in the Mobile Monday forum a week ago. I don’t have too many low light shots in my files but this one, taken with my mobile, is my favourite at the moment. (In this forum I can use a little PS editing too 🙂 )

      Very interesting and beautiful photo.
      But I see a red lamp at the end of the bridge or the path. When we get there, do we have to turn around? 😉

        Thanks Andre. Ocean lies beyond the jetty and about 14 kms away is Kangaroo Island. The light is a shipping beacon for the ferries which travel to and from the island. They enter a small harbour via the right side of the jetty. I originally made the whole pic B&W but thought I would have some spot colour in this re-edited version.

    I don’t have any recent low light shots so I pulled this one out from February. This is one of the first long exposure shots (8 seconds) I took with my new camera. I was struck by the reflections on Okanagan Lake, made by the billboards from the highway.

      Wow, Beth, it is amazing how similar these piers can be.  I have one taken on the Seabird Coast, here in New Zealand.  However, the pier is much broader – plus my image is not nearly as good as yours!

    I toured a couple of distilleries recently. This was taken at Buffalo Trace in Frankfort, KY. There was not much lighting in their warehouses. If I remember correctly, these barrels hold what will one day be Pappy Van Winkle.
