Weeekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

For this week’s photo challenge, I selected photos taken in the last three months, all with my cellphone camera.

Taking photos at night can be challenging and for me, often unsuccessful.  However, there are always some surprises as well as opportunities to take night photos that I grab when I can.

Just last Friday, I took some pictures at Navy Pier in Chicago at night.  We were attending a performance at Shakespeare Theatre’s Skyline Stage, which is under a sort of tent, but during the intermission we walked out onto the patio. The Ferris Wheel was nearby, all lit up.

The windows of the Shakespeare Theatre building created this distorted reflection of the Ferris Wheel’s flashing lights:

In July, I took these photos on a lake in northern Wisconsin, at sunset and just after:

Clouds over lake after sunset: there is a small white dot in the upper right corner - that's the moon.

And of course, what would summer be without a 4th of July fireworks show enjoyed with some kids? (My nephews). We were on the pier of our cottage on this same lake, and I managed to get these shots:
