Phoenix Twilight

I'm fairly happy with how this photo turned out. It was taken on 10/19/2007 at 6:33pm (which is around half an hour after sunset) from the top of Piestewa Peak looking west.

I don't think that many people use all the facilities on their digital cameras. I have a ton of specialized settings on my camera under the PICT option as follows: Museum, Text, Food, Landscape/Portrait, Marine, Flower, Self-Portrait, Surf, Snow, Sunset. I have used them all, even the marine option, from a porthole in a submarine.

This photo, however, was taken with the twilight setting and using the timer. When I use the twilight setting I find that my hand is not steady enough for the length of time the shutter is open so I need to rest it somewhere. Using the timer means that I don't need to touch the camera at all and that reduces shake.
