We just don’t spend a lot of time in absolute night. I find it joyous and humbling. When was the last time you walked solely by moonlight or starlight? It’s always amazing to me what the camera picks up; the lights of a distant headlight here or a bit of stray headlamp there.
What is magical to me is painting a landscape with starlight. How amazing is that? Tiny, faraway lights with impact.
What will your tool of choice be today to paint the world?
Taking nighttime pictures is an exercise in painting with light. Old, old and faint light. The creation is always spectacular.
