Decided it was time to play in the dark. I got out my remote timer and tripod and ventured into the backyard. I tried flowers, solar lamps, the pool and a few other objects around the yard. The above picture is one of our solar lamps. I used the 'bulb' setting. I believe I kept the shutter open for about 10 seconds but I can't remember because I changed objects and settings often. I did learn that when taking picutres in very low light you need to have it on manual focus. Well, at least I did.
