Night Pictures - Nat Geo Feature

January 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

National Geographic featured a couple of my images recently in Your Shot: Night Pictures.

 

The first image was "Rio at Night". 

Fabulous view of Rio de Janeiro and its surrounding neighborhoods from Pao de Acucar (Sugar Loaf) mountain, Brazil. The view from Sugar Loaf is one of the finest urban vistas in the world. In the foreground are lines for the cable cars taking people up from Morro da Urca to Pao de Acucar.

I took this image with a Canon 5D with 24-105 f4L IS lens on a tripod.  Exposure setting: 24mm, f/8, 20s, ISO 200.

The second image featured was "Petra at Night".

The Al Khazneh or Treasury illuminated by candle-lights during the "Petra by Night" show. Petra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is famous for its many rock-cut monuments by the Nabateans. Petra is "touristy" but still well worth the visit. The walk to the Treasury takes a good 20 to 30 minutes from the main gate; I'd recommend bringing a flashlight for additional lighting along the pathway.

I took this image with a Canon 5D and 17-40 f4L lens on a tripod.  Exposure setting: 17mm, f/5.6, 10s, ISO 800.
