Thanks Juggernaut. You need a tripod (or similar), low light, low ISO, a small aperture and as much negative exposure compensation as your camera will allow.
I took this shot early in the morning with my camera mounted on a 5 mini tripod which I secured to a fence. I set the camera's self timer to 2 seconds so the camera wouldn't move when the exposure began. My camera was set in Manual mode with the following settings,
ISO, 80
F Number, 8.0
Exposure Compensation, -2
Shutter Speed, 1 second (adjust the shutter speed to get the correct exposure)

If you have a steady hand you could try holding a neutral density filter in front of the lens. This would let you take this type of shot in brighter conditions. It is something I have been meaning to try.
