When Night Looks Like Day

When night looks like day? When it is full moon. And tonight is full moon. With a fellow photographer I went to photograph Aurora which was supposed to be very strong today but the full moon was stronger. Its light was so strong that we could walk on a trail and work with photographic equipment without flashlights.

And here is a proof that night can look like day – a couple of photos I took tonight. The only hint of it being night are star trails in the sky.

  1. P.S. Of cause it does not look that bright to a human eye. But once camera is exposed for full range of tones, that what you get. In both pictures the exposure was ISO 200, f/4, 4 minutes.
