Canadian Clouds

A quick hike up 400 steps to the top of Mount Royal rewards you with this view of Montreal! We made it up here just before sunset and were able to spot the places we had been earlier in the day throughout the city.

City After Sunset

Sometimes it is the darkest skies that have the best colors. After the sun goes down the little light that was left over San Francisco was deep blue and purple and very moody.

Evening at the Peninsula

The daylight was almost completely gone with just a little purple left in the sky. The front of The Peninsula Hotel is usually a dramatic view, but was really fantastic with many red lanterns lighting it up.

All the Lines

It can be easy to focus on what is in front of you in the hustle and bustle. Cities like Hong Kong are all about building towards the sky, and make it fun to take a minute to look up to really appreciate the architecture.

Hong Kong Across the Harbor

Hong Kong is fantastic. You have to make time to eat all the delicious food as well as take in the many beautiful views of the city!

Fading Fast

The light was changing quickly and I had to move fast. I couldn’t see the horizon in any direction from where I was in the city. When I looked up I realized the shot I was looking for was right above me and my problems were solved.

Circles and Rectangles

Cities don’t always have to be square.

Cities and Clouds

I’m a sucker for cities. I’m a sucker for clouds. Lisbon is a great city, and was nice enough to provide clouds so you better believe I was out there with my camera! I started most nights on our hotel rooftop, and was able to get this shot without even leaving our temporary home!

A Fine City for Photography

We only spent a short time in Porto, so I wanted to make the most of it. One night I crossed the bridge and made it to the top of the hill after sundown for a panoramic shot of the entire city. You can see it all here, from the oldest parts of town to the near side of the river which is busy with port tasting all day. What you can also see, if you look very closely, are my friends enjoying a lovely meal on the far side of the river. I assumed everything in Europe was open until very late, but by the time I made it down to the restaurants everything was closed. I didn’t get a good dinner, but I got this photo!

Last Light

Some say sunset is the best, but for those with some patience to wait 25 seconds for a long exposure, the time just after sunset can really let the city lights shine.
