The short, damp days of winter in Sacramento seems to lend itself to exploring a facet of photography that for me, has been up until now, mostly unexplored: the exciting world of night photography.

There are numerous free and inexpensive vantage points from which to admire the dramatic views and admire the city. Read the Post Dramatic Seattle Vantage Points
