I have the same problem you do. To sleep, perchance to dream.......it is oh so true.
There's a guy here locally who does some marvelous things with the bulb setting. If you are near water, particularly if you can get a high angle on it like from a balcony, try shooting a pier lit up at night. The wave action turns int something dreamlike. It gives a wonderful misty texture to the water and makes the horizon turn into interesting colors.
I've wanted to do it myself, but getting up for the break of dawn is something I gave up a while back.
Post the result if you do it. I am envious of the Night Shooters!
