Let’s move beneath the surface of St. Petersburg and fly through the night.
I haven’t seen that many undergrounds around the globe but of those I have the one/s in St. Petersburg are the most amazing once. Be it going deep into the earth or the rich architecture and art of the stations.
The floating lights above sleeping/dreaming passengers.

up and up we go – be patient….
Approaching midnight – a blue night

It’s now past midnight
Resurrection church by night
Sharp 1:15 am the first bridge opens and quite a few boats are around with spectators (including me).
Many of the night shots where taken during a night boat tour which lasted until around 3 am. What would have been the trick to get still more sharp photos than blur ones whilst being on a floating and shaking boat in the middle of the night ? I’d like to hear some tips and tricks. Would the wide zone tracking mode have helped here ? Anyone tried ?
I had chosen a faster shutter speed with the compromise to underexpose but I’m usually confident with fuji raw files to maintain still almost all information in dark parts, noise levels were mostly acceptable.
