Super Bowl Indy by Night

Today’s photo set is very nearly a carbon copy of yesterday’s except it’s been flipped 36 hours into the future and thus the dark. Like most cities, Indy looks considerably better by night. Here we are looking over the city to Lucas Oil Stadium in the distance. Oh, and you can see the whole Super Bowl set here.

Note that they’re changing the signage. In yesterday’s photos, Peyton was still up to the left of the central window. More on that later.

And of course, as usual, I was distracted by the Citizen’s Gas Thermal plant. I promise that someday I’ll drag home a set of photos that doesn’t include a huge factory.

This was a heck of a party.

Portraiture is tough in the dark, but this rather plain-looking gentleman stood still for quite a while so everyone could take his picture.

The Marriott really stands out much more in the dark…

…thanks to a massive bank of spotlights.

Getting a bit closer to Lucas Oil, I found Brady stinking up the place.

The circle was home to a light show of rather epic proportions.

And the night closed with some fireworks. After three hours traipsing around for the second day in a row, I was more than a bit ready to sit down.

And that was the night that was.

  1. Love it Rob! Good set from above 🙂

  2. You’re right….the night time images definitely have a more electric and festive feel to them. And no…no…no! More ‘huge factory’ photographs! It was actually my favorite of the group….well it and the ‘plain-looking gentleman’ one. : )

  3. Fantastic pics! I have to ask . . . what’s the secret to taking a good night time shot? Is it aperture and ISO, or shutter speed? I’m just getting into photography and trying to figure this stuff out!

  8. Mr Mole

    a good ‘after dark’ effort

  9. Fantastic photos.. Did you have to use a tripod to get these or was there enough light that allowed you to shoot without one?

  10. Thanks for dropping by Rob. Love your Pix
