The Golden Arches

As I learn more and more about night photography I have discovered that sometimes the best photo's happen long after then sun goes down. I had been shooting the sunset for about an hour and this was the last photo I took before heading out to meet a friend for dinner. It was pitch black under the pier and I couldn't really tell if my tripod was centered in the middle or not it was so dark. So I just crossed my fingers and let it rip. When the LCD lite up in the back I knew I had a winner. The lights from on top of the pier were turning the water gold and the last little bit of sunset was still in the sky! Moral of the story....Always keep shooting even when you think its too dark! :O)
