Lisbon After Dark: A Photoessay

In the capital of Portugal, as in a lot of other big cities, there’s a distinct difference in the personality of the city after the sun goes down. Whether it’s seeing all the architecture lit up or catching a brief glimpse of the trams whizzing through the streets, Lisbon is great to explore after dark.

  • You’re right, Lisbon is at it’s best after dark! It rained a lot when we were there which gave the streets an even more magical glow. Great pics, and sharp! Were you using a tripod?

  • I love this beautiful city where I was born. Your pictures are amazing! Thanks for sharing them with the world!

  • Hi Nick! Love your photos. I was wondering if I would ask your permission to use a couple of your night shots of the Lisbon street with the trolley as subjects for oil paintings. BTW, I have an NEX 6 and love how nice it is in low light as well. Which lens do you use? Thank you,

    • Hi Lisa. Yes, you can use the photos as subjects for oil paintings. I’m glad that I can inspire creativity like that. At the time, I was using an NEX-5N with the 18-55mm kit lens. However, that camera recently had a too close encounter with a waterfall so I’m in the market for something new.
