Thematic Photographic 313 - When night falls

Scary place to be
London, ON
October 2014
The creeping advance of autumn brings with it two rather cruel truths:
  1. Peak color has come and gone, leaving a swirling mess of brown leaves and grey landscapes in its wake
  2. Nightfall comes ever earlier with each passing day
I don't say this to depress anyone. It just is. And as the planet moves through another phase of its yearly dance, it's simply something I'd rather notice and record, in some way, than ignore and miss all the fun.

Since it's only a matter of time before we both leave and return home in total darkness, I thought we'd embrace that fact with this week's Thematic theme, "When night falls."

Your turn: Grab a night-themed shot, post it to your blog or website, then leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to share the photographic fun. Feel free to share additional pics through the week, and don't be shy to pull a friend into the fray. I hear they like that kind of thing. For more info on how Thematic works, head here. Enjoy, and thanks!

Definitely eerie place to be at night.

Oh my I like how you captured the last light of daylight! You are right, we must rejoice in what we know is going to happen whether we're ready or not. Here's mine

This really looks like a place I would not like to be at night! Very atmospheric, Carmi.

Here are some shots taken at dusk.

Don't think I'd wander around a deserted car park in the dark! I had difficulty finding twilight photos, but came up with a couple. http://gillymaccsphotos.blogspot.com

Carmi, eerie indeed. This gathering place brings out the nighthawks.

With all the focus on our setting sun yesterday, I had to capture the best actual moment, when night falls! Here's mine

A bit late this week due to travelling to the States.

I waited for a special event coming up to add my contribution - Festa, the festival of transitional architecture - amazing structures, all lit up.

Yeah, I know it's the last day of the theme, but better late than never. I do love taking evening and other low light shots, and enjoyed looking at all yours. You can see my nightfall shots here :
