so, while we were in seattle i took the opportunity to play around some more with the settings on my camera to create different types of pictures. the night we went to the "crap it", i was able to set up the tripod and take some nightscape photos. becasue it was so dark i set the shutter speed to super slow, with a large aperature. i couldn't believe how long the shutter was staying open. anyway, here are two of my favorite seattle nightscape pictures. i love how the lights make the sky sort of an orangy, yellow color. pretty cool! it was such a beautiful night!
