Malaga Port

Another beautiful place to spend an evening in Malaga is at the port / marina. It’s a great place to eat, shop and of course do some night photography. The beach, port and old town are all within a 10 minute walk from each other. If you’re planning a trip to Spain make a stop in Malaga, you won’t be disappointed.

Old Town Malaga

Malaga is one of the oldest cities in the word. It was founded in 770 BC by the Phoenicians and was originally known as Malaka. In addition to its long history, Malaga is also the birthplace of painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso, Hebrew poet and Jewish philosopher Solomon Ibn Gabirol and the actor Antonio Banderas.

Day or night the beauty of this city is hard to resist.

Star Trails over Turtle Lake

Last weekend we were invite to a friends cottage. Aside from enjoying the company of wonderful friends and relaxing in beautiful surroundings I was most excited to try my hand at shooting star trails and the Perseid Meteor Showers that occurred over the weekend.

Here’s one of first attempts at star trails. This was a 15 minute exposure.

Zurich at Night

The view of Zurich from our hotel was just as spectacular at night as it was during the day (only just a bit trickier to capture).

Alone at Last!

I love shooting at night when the crowds die down. This particular evening it was about 10:30pm when my husband and I returned from dinner. We went to our room and I grabbed my camera and headed out, quickly yelling behind me, “I’ll be back in 1/2 hour.” I think it was after midnight when I finally got back but the beach in Tel Aviv always does that to me. I seem to get lost in the calm, the gentle rolling of the waves.

I wasn’t quite alone though. Different parts of the beach told different stories…the beach restaurant with the bright lights &  roaring music; the treasure hunter combing the sand for lost treasure; the backpackers enjoying a bonfire and claiming their real estate for the night and the young couple finding the perfect spot by the lifeguard station to steal away some romantic time alone.

The Water Wheel…at Night!

As you walk along the Charles Bridge in Prague and pass the main water way make sure you stop and look at every nook and cranny on either side. You’ll be rewarded with beautiful little scenes.

This water wheel was turning and it took me a few tries at different exposure settings to get the image, 15 secs at f6.3.
