Have you ever been outside in the winter in the pitch dark? Ever notice how the snow seems luminescent, especially if the moon is out? Or if there is a distant source of ambient light? Such as the lights from a city skyline or in this case Minneapolis.

With about a 2 or 3 minute exposure on about F5 you can make a very dramatic nightime image, especially if it's composed well.

There's alot more to photography than trains and sunny days.
