Skyline Shots @ Night

Recommended Posts

Well I am still learning to use my camera, but I think things are getting better.

Here are a few more nighttime skyline shots I took tonight.

First stop is the Central Ave bridge near the 277/ Independece interchange.

And zooming in a little:

Next I moved over to Morehead Street at the Euclid intersection. Got a nice reflection from the roof of my car:

And coming full circle back to my neighborhood, here is a shot of the Odell Tower as seen from 9th St Linear Park, they just mowed the grass today so it looks nice. Since I am cheap and don't have a tripod I had to set the camera down on the bench.

And our last pic for today, here is the view from the Davidson / 9th Traffic Circle.

Those are absoluetly fantastic shots. That is excellent quality especially without having a tripod.

We should find some exotic birds for the giant birdcages in the traffic circle. I have always wondered what the City was thinking when those were installed.

The shot from Euclid is mesmerizing. I miss Charlotte already!!!

Those are great pics, especially for not having used a tripod! It's always nice to see photos of Charlotte at night because you all bother to light up your buildings. Detroit has so many great skyscrapers, none of which are lit up very well at night. :(

Beautiful. I wish my camera took such clear long-range pics.

I'm glad Charlotte lights up its buildings nicely, because like Detroit, Buffalo doesn't, which does get annoying.

Has Charlotte always been this lit up at night? It seems like not that long ago the only thing really standing out was the BofA crown and setbacks. Maybe I just never noticed.
