Hayden Butte at Night

Hayden Butte at Night, originally uploaded by Gerald5970.

This is the same sort of deal as below, but in full color. I found that even without the moonlight, the butte was lit well enough to see even at midnight. The color is more orange from the glare of the city than it normally is. Sorry about the graininess, but with film, I don't get to review what happened until a few days after I finish the roll. So, If you have a decent digital SLR, and you're thinking about upgrading to a better one, or if you have a digital SLR camera and you found it's not your style, or if you just have a camera you don't want for any circumstances, just drop me an email. Or leave a comment on the page for this post. I'd love to hear from you!

P.S. To any Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Other Relatives and Family Friends: Christmas is coming up, and fancy digital SLR cameras make great gifts for starving college students!

This is Hayden Butte, aka "A Mountain" at night in the glow of the city. Airplanes fly by frequently.

Here is Tempe at Night. This is the intersection of Mill Ave and Rio Salado Parkway. I found a nearby parking garage without security at night, an I went all the way to the eighth level. I just waited for the light to turn, then I held the shutter open.

First Millennial Office Holder!

Cool deal, and almost hard to believe, but I checked Sitemeter today to find that crazy 1,014!

I hadn't even been keeping track of things too much. Visitor 1,001 was in the Portsmouth, RI area.

Here is that area:

This visitor came from my Profile page on Blogger, which can be googled, or clicked on from Desertsea. So, thanks to that visitor from Rhode Island! Do you happen to sail Lasers?
