It has been a while, but whenever we feature photos of night/low light scenes, we get some beautiful entries. Let's see what we get this month.

So, if you have some night or low light shots, go dig them out. If you don't have any, grab your camera and head to your layout or diorama area and try your hand at some low light photography.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Bruce, a switch from the early morning light closing last month's gallery to a night scene this month, but the same subject. Please note, the lit lantern is a FAKE OUT created with GIMP, though the effect might inspire me to try to make it really work.

Doan Towers construction rises in the foreground, as the sun slowly sets behind it.

I always like this theme, Bruce. I agree, we always get some nice shots.

Although I don't have it in a scenic environment, here are a couple "night" shots of the freight house I finished earlier in the year.

First, we have the great Edward Hopper's iconic "Nighthawks."

Followed by the great (in his own mind) Bubba Hopper's not-so-iconic "Rednecks."

Catch y'all later.

Great start!
Steve, your "Nighthawks" thread - and the whole "Bubba" story are one of my all-time favorites!

Hi guys,

Another great idea for a thread!!

Here are some from my files, spanning the last twenty or so years...

(Please forgive me if you have seen them before...)

This first batch are all from the HO layout, and are quite old, and grainy...

The next batch are later - within the past 8 or 9 years, anyway - and are all from the On30 layout.

Thank you for the opportunity to show some of my pix.
