Over the last couple of years, I’ve been trying my hand at photographing different night-time “phenomena.” There have been several events/activities that were very interesting — here are a few of the better photos of each of these events.

The Moon

When you think of night photography, this is probably the first object which comes to mind. It is readily available for (almost) anyone to shoot — I’ve taken pictures of the moon on several different occasions; however, I really like it when the moon is setting … Here are some of my favorite:


Here’s another one people think of … this is kind of a cheat … not really (completely) night yet … but getting close! Some of the sunsets have been spectacular … hard to capture … but I tried! lol.

Aurora Borealis

This one is tough — because what you can photograph and what you can see are two different things. There are so many vibrant colors in the photograph …. what you usually see (here in Kelowna) are whites, yellows, and maybe a little red/yellow.

Noctilucent Clouds …

Who knew this was a thing? These are the highest clouds in the atmosphere …Typically formed from ice crystals.

Neowise Comet

We were in the right place at the right time to see this one. Glad to capture a couple of photos.

The Southern Cross / Stars

The hardest photos to take … still working on my Milky Way pictures. haha. Captured the Southern Cross in New Zealand.

City Lights at Night

Was able to capture a few good ones here … see what you think!

I hope you enjoy the photos!
