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:

Hello Steph:

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!

Re: Hello Steph:

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...

Nicely done

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!
