[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
“Poor Man’s Lamp” is the name of this photograph and it was taken tonight from Signal Hill. The light in the far left hand corner is a ship having to for Saint John’s harbor. The full moon is helping in guiding their journey to the harbor entrance which is just to the right of the photograph. The “Poor Man’s Lamp” is an Irish expression which helps guides the poor people at night.
A slow shutter speed of 1/8 was used with a tripod.

Beautiful soft details in this well composed image.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Jim

Love the silvery path. Nice moody scene. Lovely to view. :-)

Beautiful night shot. This is very cool thanks for sharing.

Belle photo d'ambiance.
Bonne journée.

Jim I like your title as well as the shot!

Very nice colours on this. And I especially like the ship's light offsetting the moon! Well seen and well presented.

The location is also something to "enjoy": South Dildo, what!

I have added this to my "From Sea to Shining Sea" theme.


PS I was reminded of this last night, when a fishing boat came in... shining its light into my room... After it changed course I was left with just the “Poor Man’s Lamp” ...
