Local Night Scenes

After that "Men at Work" post, I really wanted my next post to be a recipe of some sort, but it's just not working out for me.  Because of busyness, lazyness, and having guests over, I've been making tried-and-true things lately.  Nothing new and exciting to blog about (except for some cookies I tried yesterday, but I'm not sure if the pics have turned out well or not, yet).  So today, I will share with you some more scenery pictures.  My husband actually took these, with my new camera.  (Apparently, he knows how to work it way better than I do!)  This is a night scene from a look-out point; it's featured on my blog here, but in the daytime. 

On this particular look-out point (there are a few that we go to) there is a huge statue.  This statue is, I believe "Our Lady of Fátima".  I think she's the same thing as the Virgin Mary, but I'm not sure, and I get confused easily.  So if you want to know more, go read that Wiki article.  I have no idea how tall this stature is, but it is tall.  It has a little bar/restaurant in the statue pedestal.  Anyway, here is a cool night picture of her.

My husband used a tripod to capture these shots and he said it made all the difference. :)
