Night Shots

My new camera does a nice job on these night shots.

The first photo is a 30 second shutter taken last night after the boys went to bed, about eight thirty P.M. You can see the green and blue night lights on in their rooms. I think the effect looks cool. The only light source is from the sodium vapor streetlight behind my camera and the glow of town on the right hand side of the photo.

The second photo is one taken early this morning, about five o'clock. It captures Jupiter and the constellation Scorpio Scorpius quite nicely. I was using a tripod and a 60 second shutter, so the streaking from the stars is actually from the motion of the earth!
