More Night Images

StripesA follow-up to my last post, here are a few more night images taken after our first snow. The black & white image at right is a shot taken at Raymond Walters College. They put in a relatively new parking lot in the back and this long sidewalk leads from the main building (behind me) to the lot. I liked the light/dark stripe pattern on the sidewalk created by the evenly spaced lights. Clicking on the image will take you to a larger version in Flickr.

The first image below is of the lights in front of a house along Kenwood road, just north of downtown Blue Ash, OH. It's not my style of house, but I think it's pretty. Sitting back from the road with a large yard and a small stream gives it a picturesque setting. The owners have a nice light display that stands out on the fresh snow. I know the lights are a bit hard to see, but this angle is a much better view of the house and yard. There was quite a bit of ground light bouncing off the clouds, so the sky stands out in the HDR image.

The bottom image is a high dynamic range panorama taken at the Blue Ash Town Square. The Millennium clock-bell tower and the holiday lights are nice. Much of the snow on the brick pavers had melted, but I still like the shot. If you want to see the large version, click on it but be warned that it's a very large file.

Earl, have you thought about submitting some of your Blue Ash photographs for the Blue Ash community calendar? You have a nice collection of Blue Ash photos.

Lovely night images! I am impressed with the light writing. I still quite understand how it did not pick you up in the frame! :)
