Some Night Shots along the Mississippi River in Minneapolis...

I finally got out to do some night photography aka low light photography on Saturday, 11-16-13. The last time I got out to do this type of photography was in January 2013 walking around Minneapolis/St. Paul area , then in February in the Florida Keys.  It seems I only get out to do this type of photography in the fall and winter. The are a few reasons for going out during those seasons. I only had one close encounter with a "drunk" person.

On Saturday I went back to the area of the Stone Arch Bridge and 3rd Avenue Bridge going over the Mississippi River. I like photographing along the Mississippi River.

During the day it was cloudy with mostly a light rain. I like going out to do photography in the city while the pavement is wet..both day or night. The reflections on the streets from the different lights make for a more interesting image. When I left my house there were just a few sprinkles...mostly a fine mist. I wasn't completely prepared for a hard rain...just because I was hoping it wouldn't rain.

I came away with about 10 images from the evening. I posted three of them to this post. The others are uploaded to my website under Night Photography- Minneapolis/St. Paul. There's a link to the gallery after these posted images.
