Nighttime Illuminations

When the sun goes down and the sky turns black, there is no other city quite like Salzburg. At night, the City illuminates many of it's gorgeous features. When I first discovered the various illuminated objects could be combined in a single frame, I became ecstatic. I had a lot of fun playing with different angles and overcoming obstacles. For this shot I had to lie on my side in the gravel and, using a small pocket tri-pod, stabilize the shot long enough to barely blur the action of the water in the fountain. Because the lights were so strong, the objects overpowered the background and allowed the objects to pop out of the darkness.
