Frugal Travels...Pictures after sunset

This time, we nearly replicated the activities of our last trip, so when I saw the view out of our room, I knew I was going to be able to get some neat pictures at night time.

 These pictures were taken just after the sun had set. The trick is to overexpose just enough to get a nice deep blue sky while keeping the details sharp. This can be done in Aperture Priority mode using exposure compensation, or in Manual mode by simply adjusting the shutter speed for a longer exposure.
