Here are some of the night photos I've taken over the years, and now that I am shooting digital I've been doing more night shots than before.
|These first few photos I shot nearly ***50*** years ago (yes, I am that old!) with a Kodak Rangefinder Camera and Kodachrome II film. This is the southbound Copper Country Limited at Iron Mountain, Michigan in February of 1966.|
|Green Bay, Wisconsin - January 14, 1967.|
|Marinette, Wisconsin - March 14, 1967.|
|Marinette, Wisconsin - May of 1967.|
|Now jumping ahead several decades I am now shooting digital photos and here is an eastbound at Shawmut, Arizona on October 14, 2012. All of the following photos were taken with a camera mounted flash and the camera set on 'full auto' for exposure and focusing.|
