Canal living

By ColleenA
Good morning....
a cold foggy morning in Cape town...thank you for your continued support even though I have only had time to vote and not comment much. A huge thank you to Ali63 for her UA much appreciated
Our move is over, we are exhausted but relieved. We only leave Cape town for good on the 6th June so we are now staying in a furnished apartment on the canal at the Waterfront next to the harbour. I am totally out of my comfort zone with night photography but here is my attempt...its just so pretty at night. The versions are include some day time images of the canal complex.
Have a nice day .....I am chilling this weekend

I'm no expert on night photography either Colleen but you've certainly done a love job with these.
White Rose1 is the one to follow for advice on night shots.
I do like the reflected blue lights in V1 and the windows in V2 (imaginging the lives within)
and the last glimmer of sky in V5.
