It is 6 pm in Wisconsin and the lights are going crazy. Too bad I can't figure out how to take pictures with this new camera....AARRRGGHH.

AAAAHHHH, I'm at work w/no camera. Set yours to auto and start taking pics on a tripod or sturdy object. Or set shutter to 5-15 seconds and show us the results. Hope someone gets some pics.

AARRRGGGGHHH!!!! (is that the title of this thread?)

I just suffered through a 3 1/2 hour rehearsal for Evita. :whackfive months to go) No lights in my sky by the time I crawled home.

I hope someone gets some shots. Thanks for the tip, Wisconsin.

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

These are too pathetic topost...OK, I'll post and let you rip me apart. I used the A-Dep setting on my Canon Rebel because it was the only one that would let me be set for 30 seconds and actually depress the button for a shot. There is no clarity, but I guess I'm not surprised. How do people get those awesome shots?

Hope to see some REAL photos here later. The sky was ALIVE tonight.

The clarity got 100 times worse when I posted. What a bummer.

I think you are being too hard on yourself. I like the formations in the second one you posted.

Well, I got the wiggle out of my 20 year old tripod, and tried some slower shutter speeds (I did 30 sec on the first set). I used the lights on the ground to focus on and these were a little bit better.

and one last one before I head to bed...this one I modified a tiny bit because it was sort of dark...

It is hard working with a new camera in the dark!! This was a well spent, night, however. Those dancing lights just seem to permeate your soul!!!


:bye:

Good night!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope some of you had better luck than I did!!

I saw those too up in St. Cloud, MN but with the city lights they were not too visible.
