30 Breathtaking Examples of Night Sky Photography

People’s fascination with the stars has begun when primitive man raised his head up for the first time and, probably, it would last for the ends of times. There is nothing surprising that so many photographers rotate their lenses into a vertical positions to take picture of these fantastic nature wonders. I believe every photographer has tried to photograph the night sky at least once, and figured out that it’s not that easy as it seems.

In fact, the most common thing you see at the sky at night are stars. The stars themselves are pretty dull and not interesting as a shooting object, so it’s critically important to take into account foreground of the picture. The foreground might vary from the city skyline to tropical forests, it all depends on the region you live in.

Today I put together 30 examples of night sky photography that would definitely take your breath away! So, scroll down and enjoy star trails, moon, polar lights, fireworks, and Milky Way. I hope all these photographs will provide you some fresh ideas for your future photo sessions. Turn on your imagination and as soon as darkness will cover the sky – grab your camera and start shooting!
