One of my loves in photography is getting out to do night photography. There’s no need to put the camera away when the sun goes down in fact some of the most interesting photos can be taken at night. Those that follow me regularly on Facebook will notice that every now and again I go out and do some night photography. Sometimes I wish I had more time for it because it’s something I love to play with but my photo work must come first as always!
Anyway, this post is about the appreciation of night photography and to show a selection of my images and what can be done after dark. The below image is a shot of the Milky Way as it was stretched across the sky above me. If you live in the city then this probably isn’t a common sight. I had to drive nearly an hour out of town to escape the light pollution enough to catch this photo. Continue past the break for more.
