Over the Christmas holiday, I was thinking of doing some night shots at the Alberta Legislative building. With the Christmas lights up it should make for some fantastic pictures. After we can walk over to the Hi Level bridge for night shots of the bridge and car light trails. From the walkway we should be able to get a nice elevated view of river valley road.
You will require a tripod, remote release, if you don't have a remote release you can use your self timer. I find a small flashlight comes in handy. As for lens I like a wide angle or a zoom[masked] mm. Dress warm as it could be cold.
