30 Marvelous Nighttime Photographs

Advertisement

Nighttime photography is a unique challenge.  Photography relies on capturing light patterns reflected or emitted from objects to activate a sensitive chemical or electronic sensor during a timed exposure, usually through a photographic lens in a camera that also stores the resulting information chemically or electronically.  However, at night, there is significantly less light available to be captured by the camera, which makes photographers get creative with their photos.

In this post, we’ve rounded up 30 marvelous nighttime photographs from some of the best photographers in the world.  The northern lights, majestic starscapes, bridges shrouded in fog, and striking buildings against the night sky are only a few of the incredible sights below.

Enjoy the photographs, and be sure to visit each artist’s page by clicking on the photograph!  Thanks to the members of Flickr, deviantART and 1x.com for taking these beautiful photographs.
