A selection of night photography

I really enjoy night photography in the backcountry. I love the combination of technical and creativity. The development of my night photography has been self-taught, and I'd love to write a book on the subject, supplementing various articles with photos. Actually, I've started writing this book, but it's just a matter of finding a publisher willing to publish it....

Anyway, I thought I'd share some of my favorite night photos. If you are interested, I have posted many more night photos as well as tips and tricks of night photography on my website:

You apparently don't have a problem with traveling, and withstanding cold weather climates, which is good. What you're
persuing is very fascinating, because it speaks about you as a
creative person. This man (in Arizona) wishes you the best of
times, and good luck with your book!

Thanks for the encouragement. With the positive feedback I've gotten so far after posting some of these photos, I think this book would be one that could be enjoyed by many....the main hurdle is finding a willing publisher...

maybe you can cross-attach a few of your beatiful shots to the other SP's night-photo album? And please don't forget to pick one for the "title shot" of this album, too!
