Night of Tram Lines and Castles in Ghent
Ghent at night, it’s pretty
Old medieval city, clear night sky and a camera, that’s a Saturday night sorted for me. And Ghent fits the bill more than perfectly. So while my friends headed to the pub, I took a few hours to walk around the city with my camera.
Where is the tram? It went already

And I was not disappointed, there are canals with reflections, illuminated castles and cathedrals, tram lines and lamp posts; all offering beautiful night views. Of course the trouble was not so much finding views worth capturing, but where to stand my camera for the 20 second exposures. I only travel usually with a gorillapod, as proper tripods are a bit too cumbersome.
After a few hours however, it was time put away the camera and head to the pub where my friends were keeping a seat warm for me. And after a few hours of night photography, Belgium beer tasted damn good.

People like sitting by the canals at night, can’t really blame them, it’s nice
