On Sunday afternoon we celebrated the unseasonably warm weather by driving in Shenandoah National Park, which had just reopened after being closed several weeks due to snow. We were still on Skyline Drive after 5 PM, which is pretty close to nightfall at this time of year. In fact, it was dark by the time we reached the last overlook near the northern end of the park. When I saw the lights twinkling below I knew I had to get a shot!
I rolled down the window and used it's frame to steady the camera for a long exposure. (Long in this case is only half a second, but if you don't use a tripod that's long enough to cause a blur.)
