While Springfield Illinois might not have a horribly exciting nightlife for people interested in those types of activities, Springfield does actually have a downtown.  I took this from the top of the Hilton.  I wished I would have brought my tripod again, but I was up there for a friend’s wedding reception, so I didn’t want to lug it around all night.  It still worked out ok though, even after my multiple captain and cokes.  I was able to basically lean up against the window and brace my self against it while I took some shots.  This one came out best, but it was still a tough choice picking this one over another similar angle I had taken earlier around sunset with a streak of bright orange sky in the background.  I ended up going with this one though because I liked the way the city was just glowing.
