Recently, I’ve taken my camera out for a midnight stroll. Something about the night and particularly the night sky are appealing to me. Night photos can be very difficult but they are, in my book, some of the most rewarding shots. I look for shots that portray the feelings of sleep, beauty, dark and creepy. So far I haven’t achieved exactly what I am looking to achieve. However, I have taken some shots that I am happy to share.
The following photos were taken on different nights over the past few months. A couple of the shots are from a trip to visit family in New Jersey and the rest are in Ohio. Some nights the clouds are fast moving. Due to the slow shutter the clouds in those nights appear misty or blurry while the foreground and background stay crisp. All of these, with the exception of the ground view, were taken using a tripod. Most are set on a thirty second shutter.
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed.
Wow. More than a few of these are quite good. Like I said before, you have a special talent for existing light photography.
Thank you. Your comments make me smile.
some beautiful shots here!
Great shots! They are all beautiful and I love moon behind clouds most❤
Yes, it is one of my favorites too. Thanks.
Thank you very much.
What camera are you using? they’re really good quality
all the shots are beautiful. [I commented here because while reading the comments, i found that you have Nikon D3100. I too have same dslr and I love it.]
Yes, I love this camera. It’s not too complicated for a newbie like me.
Great shots, I think the fence is my favorite. Wish I had more time to take pictures around here, lots of good locations.
Thanks. Yes, I bet you have some good scenery down there.
Nic pictures. Love the clouds one. If you want to up the creepy, expand the shot a little, include more of the darkness of the house ( or whatever the shot is of). Shadows. Look for shadows. They are the overall creepy factor.
Thanks. I’ll have to try that.
Some really cool pics! I never seem to have my tripod with me when a great night scene unfolds! I need to work on that!
I bought a cheap portable one. It was about $14 at Wal-mart. I usually keep it in my backpack or car.
Beautiful! I love the colors in your photos.
Thank you for your comment. I am glad you enjoy them.
Wonderfully done! I always have a hard time with night photography. These are Fantastic!
Thank you. I sort of like the mundane night shot. But sometimes these are the hardest for me to capture.
The street view shot looks awesome! Typical little mid-western town, just the way I like it…
Absolutely gorgeous photos! 😀
Thank you. Glad you liked DaydreamsinWonderland. Come back soon.
great shot 🙂
I really like the photo of the fence. All the crisscrossing wood makes me wonder if the fence is meant to keep something in…or out. Perfect for the approach of Halloween!
This is fantastic!
Thank you so much.
LOVE this shot! Thanks for noting Terrier Logic!
Welcome. Thanks Toni.
