Ottawa At Night

I often forget how beautiful my City of Ottawa is especially at night.  Since I got my Nikon D3000 for Christmas I've been wanting to make it downtown to photograph the city.  After doing some night photography on my vacation to Munich, Prague, Vienna and Budapest this fall I realized I was in desperate need of some assistance with taking pictures as night. 

Thanks to a workshop with Ottawa Photo Safari and instructor Ray Pilon my night photography skills have gotten better over night.  I've got a long way to go, but it was a huge step forward for me.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier with the lights a glow in the background.

We are so lucky to be able to get up on the hill and take photos of this great building.  It looks so amazing all done up in lights.
   
Now I know where the secret photo spot is at Parliament Hill

Our War Memorial at Night.  I love the shadows.

One of my favorite shots.  You can see the amazing light show happening all over the building and the flame.
