Photography Tips

This spot is not that easy after sunset, there is just very little illumination. In fact, the water tower is illuminated only by the top two neon stripes. Underneath, there is a bar that has some light but it does not reach the tower. The sun sets right behind the tower so you will have to take a few exposures and blend them in lightroom. On top, there are many ducks flying around creating ripples in the water. Have patience and take your time, they will eventually fly to the other basins.
