Week 44 – #24 Long Exposure

24 Long Exposure - 5

From a trip to the Tampa Riverwalk with Christine and Vinnie, here are some of the images which will give you an idea of what they have there, with colored lights that change, awnings (fortunate for us since it poured), and the nice walk itself.  This is the second time I have tried the river walk and was rained on both times.  We got further this time but still not far on the walk.  Maybe the third time will be the charm.  Lightning strike was with no special equipment – just a quick finger – but Vincent Veneruso got the multiple strikes in one image which I missed.   All luck of the draw – if you were ready or not.

Most images taken at ISO 100 or 200, between 17-55 mm, AV from

      Thank you – Well, maybe you should come with me – I can’t guarantee dramatic weather but as Christine and Vincent found out, we have a lot of laughs. (aka nothing happens like it is supposed to and we have to have fun with it).

  3. Great images – great company. thanks Sue!

    What beautiful photos Sue! Spread the word next time you decide to go you might have a few carloads of people joining you!

      Thank you – we are looking at doing it as possibly a club event. Usually I do trips like this off the cuff so to speak, with little to no planning. I guess I should do something like Kevin does – and just post something in the facebook page.

  5. Great photos. Looks like such a lovely walk (rain or otherwise)

    Awesome, absolutely awesome images. The colors are out of this world. I had no idea that Curtis Hixon Park presented a show like that.

    • Sue Karski says:

      Thank you George. They just opened the new section of river walk. And the awnings and lights underneath change color which makes it nice. We did not get too far though and I want to see more.
