The Bright Dark of Night

City, Night, City Lights, Milwaukee, Riverwalk,
In the deep dark of night, the city waterway reflects lights of life. This is a view along the Riverwalk in downtown Milwaukee, WI.

This is an image I captured a couple of years ago. A photography friend from the Milwaukee area took me to some great spots for some night photography. I was looking through some of the shots I took that night but never got around to processing. I thought this one was worth a little effort.

I had posted another image from this taken the same night from this same area, in color, awhile back. (See Big City Serenity) This one, in monochrome tones, has become my favorite of the two. Take a look at the other one to see which one is more appealing to you.

Burst of Elegance

Fireworks, Burst, Blue, White, Night, 4th of July, July 4th
The patterns and colors of fireworks bursts can create their own fine art that is beautiful, interesting and elegant.

I know I enjoy fireworks more than most – or at least, photos of fireworks.  It’s the rich colors and unpredictable burst patterns, contrasting with the dark background, that I find very appealing. This is a good example of a fireworks image that captivates my attention.  Am I the only one?

Rock Bottom on the River

Rock Bottom Brewery, Milwaukee, WI, River, Riverwalk, Reflection, Night
Despite the sign, it’s not the “Ro Bottom.”  (I hear minions giggling.)  It’s the Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery, located on the Riverwalk in downtown Milwaukee, WI.  On an evening of “big city” night photography, a photographer friend and I shared a meal here and then walked up and down the river taking photos.

Pere Marquette Park Gazebo

Night, Milwaukee, Riverwalk, Reflection, Gazebo, Monochrome, B&W
Calm prevails over the Pere Marquette Park gazebo in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This was taken on a calm, evening stroll along the Riverwalk.

Spending time in Milwaukee recently, I was able to join a photographer friend for a little night photography.  I don’t often get into the big city, so it was fun to capture big city lights.  I thought this image was best suited for a monochrome treatment.  I hope you think so too.

Slipping Toward Twilight

Shades of night are slipping into the River Walk area of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

I was fortunate to spend some time doing some night photography with an experienced photographer from the Milwaukee area. It’s always great, when away from home, to have a photographer familiar with the location give you benefit of their experience.

Big City Serenity

Night, Milwaukee, River, Lights, Reflection, Downtown
I was able to connect with a photographer friend on a recent trip to Milwaukee, WI.  He graciously took me to a few locations for nighttime photography. I thought this one turned out well.

Along Milwaukee’s river walk, there are a number of downtown locations where a beautiful scene can be captured.

Curly At Lambeau

Curly Lambeau, Statue, Lambeau Field, Green Bay Packers,
Visitors to Lambeau Field – home of the Green Bay Packers – are greeted by larger-than-life statues of legendary coach, Vince Lombardi, and the founder, player and first coach, Curly Lambeau. (The one pictured here.)  Lambeau coached the Packers for 31 years and is the one person most responsible for the existence of the Green Bay Packers franchise.

I previously posted a photo of the Vince Lombardi statue Here.

Full Moon, Lighthouse, Lake Michigan, Kewaunee, WI, Night, People
A number of people waited near the lighthouse, at the end of the long, Kewaunee, WI pier, to watch the full moon rise above Lake Michigan.

This was an August full moon. The small lights you see on the horizon are fishing boats out on the lake.  I took this photo from the beach with a large zoom lens.

EAA Fireworks – 2013

Fireworks, Airshow, Aircraft, EAA

It’s no secret, especially to those who follow this blog, I like fireworks.  This is one of my favorite fireworks photos.

The fireworks are pretty cool, but my favorite part is the people.  The people are my favorite part because of where they are.  If you look closely, you’ll notice airplanes parked among the people.

This is a view from the fireworks display at the Experimental Aircraft Association’s 2013 AirVenture – held every year in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Pathway to Glory

Airshow, Night, Fireworks, EAA

Fireworks, Airshow, Night, EAAThese are all images taken at AirVenture in Oshkosh Wisconsin – the annual convention of the Experimental Aircraft Association. These are long exposure images snapped during the night airshow. The above photo was a 32-second exposure, the image to the right was 8, the image below was 35.

How were these graceful forms created? An airplane flew an acrobatic routine with some kind of sparkly fireworks shooting from the wings. To capture the action, I had my camera on a tripod and positioned on the area of sky where I guessed the plane would be flying. These were my best guesses and even these have moments where the plane went beyond the camera’s view…and came back.

The long exposure captures the brightest light from the aircraft’s flight pattern. In the dark, the aircraft, itself, wasn’t bright enough or in one spot long enough to be registered by the camera’s sensor.

If you look closely, you’ll see stars that show up as little white dashes. The whisps, particularly noticeable in the bottom photo, are the smoke left behind from the fireworks.
