The warship Auora

We took an optional tour of St Petersburg by night from our boat. We left the boat at 2300hrs and returned at 0230hrs in the morning. It’s quite surreal to be able to photograph at this time of night without a tripod. The drawbridges do not begin to rise until after 1:00am every day. I was told it is now done more for the tourists than out of necessity.

In some of the photographs the sky appears very dark, this is because I under-exposed those photographs to get detail in the bridges.St P Night 1
