This past summer my wife and daughter got me a Pentax K-30. I'm am really liking this camera. Of course it is much more camera than i know how to use. I have got a lot to learn. One of the first things I wanted to do was take some night pics. So i started playing around with settings trying to get the right combination. Below is a photo taken of Yosemite Valley from tunnel view about 1 hr after sunset. I liked this one a lot because how it picked up the sodium lights, from the tunnel behind me, on the snow covered limbs of the trees . I also thought that the traffic on the valley floor, clouds, snow, and the aircraft up at the right added more coolness. Post processing included a run through noise reduction software (ISO on this pic was at 6400). I have since learned that with bulb mode i could lower my ISO reducing the noise and use a longer exposure time. Of course I start getting more star trails than points of light. The exif information is below the pic. If any you photographers out there can provide some wisdom please do. K-30 with 18-55mm Kit lens
